A three-day “MARPOL Annex VI and Technology Transfer” workshop took place in Durban, South Africa during 23-25 August. The workshop raised awareness of the Organization’s regulatory regime dealing with improving energy efficiency and the control of GHG emissions from ships.
The event is the latest in a series of workshops organized under IMO’s GloMEEP project, which is supporting uptake and implementation of energy efficiency measures for shipping in developing countries. South Africa is one of the 10 GloMEEP lead pilot countries.
A total of 25 participants from the Department of Transport, Department of Energy, Department of Environmental Affairs, South Africa Maritime Safety Authority (SAMSA), the Transnet National Port Authority and others are taking part in the event.
IMO is represented by Astrid Dispert and a team of consultants.
