IMO seeks 5 groups to host maritime hubs globally, to cut emissions
THE UN's International Maritime Organisation (IMO) has launched a new global project to tackle increasing emissions from shipping, backed by EUR10 million (US$11.28 million) in funding from the European Union.
The "Capacity Building for Climate Change Mitigation in the Maritime Shipping Industry" project is now looking to establish Maritime Technology Cooperation Centres (MTCCs), in Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, Latin America, and the Pacific, reported Vancouver Ship & Bunker.
The IMO is seeking bids from five organisations to host the MTCCs, with initial funding support. Entities have until May 15, to submit expressions of interest.
The IMO was cited as saying that the MTCCs are intended "to become centres of excellence, providing leadership in promoting ship energy-efficiency technologies and operations, and the reduction of harmful emissions from ships."
"This four-year project will enable developing countries, especially Least Developed Countries and Small Island Developing States, in the target regions to effectively implement energy-efficiency measures through technical assistance and capacity building," said the IMO.
