Niger Delta

Restoring biodiversity in the Niger Delta

The IUCN-Niger Delta Panel was established in 2012 at the request of Shell Petroleum Development Company of Nigeria Limited (SPDC). Managed by IUCN, it comprised experts from around the world to provide science-based recommendations to help restore biodiversity at sites affected by oil spills and on enhanced remediation techniques within SPDC's areas of operation in the Niger Delta. The panel's work finished in 2016 but IUCN and SPDC continue to work together to improve the recovery of biodiversity at specific sites.
