Maritime partnership project

Members of Jamaica’s National Task Force on the Global Environment Facility (GEF), the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) two-year global maritime energy efficiency partnership project share lens time following their first meeting in Kingston. Jamaica is one of ten Lead Pilot Countries around the globe participating in the project which focuses on the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) from international shipping. The GloMEEP project, formally designated 'Transforming the Global Maritime Transport Industry towards a Low Carbon Future through Improved Energy Efficiency', aims to support increased implementation of energy-efficiency measures for shipping, focusing on building capacity and skills to implement technical and operational measures in developing countries, where shipping is increasingly concentrated. The project supports the development of a low-carbon maritime sector for minimising the adverse impacts of shipping emissions on climate change, ocean acidification and local air quality.
