ST PETERSBURG, July 8 (Itar-Tass) - A website, which has been created on Russia’s initiative within the Global Marine Environment Protection Initiative, will be launched by the G-20 summit due to take place in St Petersburg in September, Russian G-20 Sherpa Kseniya Yudayeva said.
A specialized website, which starts working in two months, has been presented to participants in the G-20 expert conference on raw materials and energy markets currently underway in St Petersburg.
According to the website’s authors, the countries will place information on the state of marine environment, oil spills and other pollutions, as well as on experience to prevent disasters and their consequences. The website will contain information and it will not contain instructions due to be fulfilled. The website’s purpose is to exchange experience in the environmental protection. Members of the G-20 and other countries, as well as international organizations can take part in forming contents of the website, its developers said.
The website has been created since 2010. The disaster in the Gulf of Mexico was one of the reasons for creating the website. Russia called for strengthening international cooperation to prevent and eliminate the consequences of oil disasters. The Global Initiative gained support from the Organization of Economic Development and Cooperation, the International Regulators’ Forum and OPEC.
