From Africa to the Pacific, a host of pilot projects and capacity-building initiatives to show shipping decarbonisation in action are highlighted in a new IMO film.
Namely, the film showcases tangible solutions in climate change mitigation in the shipping industry by use of technology in trials and pilots under the Global MTCC Network (GMN) Project, which is implemented by IMO and funded by the European Union.
As informed, the global network of Maritime Technology Cooperation Centres (MTCCs) undertake pilot projects and promote technologies and operations to improve energy efficiency in the maritime sector.
The film was launched (10 November) during the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP 26) at a side event, How to decarbonize Africa’s shipping sector, which showcased efforts in the African region; explored issues around decarbonisation in ports and shipping; and provided an overview of the GMN project.
