Greenhouse gas emissions from maritime shipping industry are expected to increase globally. Developing countries, which play a significant role in international shipping, often lack the means to improve energy efficiency in their shipping sectors. The European Commission has recently signed an agreement with the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) to provide assistance to developing countries for reducing GHG and other emissions in their maritime shipping industry and promote energy efficiency within this sector.

This four-year project, entitled “Capacity Building for Climate Change Mitigation in the Maritime Shipping Industry” will enable developing countries, especially Least Developed Countries and Small Island Developing States, in five target regions – Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, Latin America and the Pacific, to effectively implement energy-efficiency and emissions reduction measures through technical assistance and capacity building. The project is supported by a €10 million funding contribution from the European Union Development Cooperation Instrument (DCI), managed by the Directorate General for International Cooperation and Development of the European Commission.
