Abstract

Multi-stakeholder collaboration becomes imperative when a single agency - such as the NNPC or the oil companies - cannot by themselves adequately address a recurring menace, such as oil pipeline disasters. Thus, agencies - such as the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), NOSDRA, FMHDSD, fire service, oil companies, health and security agencies, the media, academia, and the community - must seek to promote cooperation in order to achieve successful oil pipeline disaster policy implementation. To achieve this goal efficiently and effectively, a framework for stakeholders' collaboration in the management and mitigation of oil pipeline disasters in Nigeria was developed in this study, which used interviews with both the main stakeholders and industry experts. In a bid to achieve an unbiased opinion, questionnaires and document analysis of data obtained from secondary sources were also carried out. A framework for the mitigation of oil pipeline disasters before, during and after disaster occurrence was developed. The framework captures the relevant stakeholders as well as their roles in disaster mitigation.
