The partnership will result in collaboration to jointly deliver technical cooperation and capacity-building activities to support implementation of the IMO resolution (MEPC.323(74)) which encourages voluntary cooperation between ships and ports to cut GHG emissions.

More specifically, IAPH and GreenVoyage2050 will jointly develop several workshop packages on sustainable ports, exploring potential measures and incentives in the port to reduce GHG emissions, and dedicated training materials on Onshore Power Supply (OPS), supporting ports to assess viability and key considerations, which need to be thought through before making any investments.

The collaboration of IMO with IAPH builds upon the successful outcomes of a partnership between IAPH and the GloMEEP Project, which ended in December 2019. A Port Emissions Toolkit was developed and rolled out to developing countries, which provides guidance for ports wishing to develop port-specific emissions inventories and emissions reductions strategies.

The overall aim of the partnership is to demonstrate how efforts in the port can support overall reductions in emissions from shipping and help achieve the goals of the Initial IMO Strategy on the reduction of GHG emissions from ships.
