International project to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from shipping launched

 

A major international project to support the International Maritime Organization (IMO)’s initial strategy for reducing greenhouse gas emissions from shipping has been launched.

 

Entitled GreenVoyage-2050, the project will initiate and promote global efforts to demonstrate and test technical solutions for reducing such emissions, as well as enhancing knowledge and information sharing to support the IMO GHG reduction strategy.

 

GreenVoyage-2050 is a collaboration between IMO and the government of Norway and will run for an initial two-year period. More than 50 countries in 14 sub-regions across the globe are expected to participate, including developed countries and strategic partners from the private sector, who will contribute expertise and experience.

 

The project will also build capacity in developing countries, including small island developing states (SIDS) and least developed countries (LDCs), to fulfil their commitments to meet climate-change and energy-efficiency goals for international shipping.

 

Initially, eight countries, from five high-priority regions (Asia, Africa, Caribbean, Latin America and Pacific), are expected to take pilot roles, to pursue and undertake actions at the national level. These pilot countries will then become "champions", galvanising momentum by supporting other partnering countries in their respective regions to follow a similar path, said a release.
