Improving oil spill response capability
The mission of the GISEA Project is to improve the regional capability in Southeast Asia.
About GISEA
Launched in 1996, the Global Initiative (GI) is an umbrella programme under which governments, through the International Maritime Organization (IMO), and the oil industry, through IPIECA, work together to assist countries in developing national structures and capability for oil spill preparedness and response. 
Activities
The GISEA Project supports the capacity building of the competent national authorities and wider community in Southeast Asia region through sharing of expertise, organising workshops, training, seminars and exercises in collaboration with corporate and the local oil and gas industry.

Regional Information
Southeast Asia is composed of eleven sovereign states of impressive diversity in religion, arts, culture, politics and history. These are Brunei, Burma (Myanmar), Cambodia, Timor-Leste, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam. The region is also one of the fastest growing areas of the world economically, which largely accounts for its current international significance. Ten of these countries are members of ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations), with Timor-Leste as an observer. ASEAN is a political and economic organization aimed primarily at promoting economic growth and regional stability among its members.

The level of oil spill preparedness and response varies with different ASEAN Member States. Below are the summary of the oil spill preparedness levels in this region. See the tabs on individual countries for more details. 

The status of the conventions signed and ratified by the ASEAN Member States are summarised in the table below:
