The Global Maritime Energy Efficiency Partnerships Project (GloMEEP), which aims to support increased uptake and implementation of energy-efficiency measures for shipping, has been formally launched in Singapore, at the IMO-Singapore Future-Ready Shipping 2015 conference.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}This Global Environment Facility (GEF)/United Nations Development Programme (UNDP)/IMO project, formally designated ‘Transforming the Global Maritime Transport Industry towards a Low Carbon Future through Improved Energy Efficiency’, will focus in particular on building capacity to implement technical and operational measures in developing countries, where shipping is increasingly concentrated.

Funding for the two-year project was agreed in July. IMO will execute the project, which aims to create global, regional and national partnerships to build the capacity to address maritime energy efficiency and for countries to mainstream this issue within their own development policies, programmes and dialogues.

A number of lead pilot countries will begin with the project: Argentina, China, Georgia, India, Jamaica, Malaysia, Morocco, Panama, Philippines and South Africa.{/mprestriction}
