Webinar for Climate Change Mitigation in the Shipping and Maritime Industry with a Focus on North African States bordering the Mediterranean Sea.

Greenhouse Gas emissions from the Maritime Shipping Industry are expected to increase globally. Developing countries, which play a significant role in international shipping can improve Energy Efficiency in their shipping sectors for sustainable development.
MTCC Africa was pleased to host, in collaboration with the Regional Marine Pollution Emergency Response Centre for the Mediterranean Sea (REMPEC), the MTCC-Africa virtual webinar targeting Maritime Administrations, Port Authorities, and line Ministries in the Northern Africa Region bordering the Mediterranean Sea.

This virtual webinar highlighted the need for the Promotion of Technical Co-operation and Transfer of Technology relating to the Improvement of Energy Efficiency in Ports plus the shipping industry at large.

The objectives of the Webinar were:

  1. To raise awareness in the lessons learned on the implementation of Marpol Annex VI in the North African/East African region.
  2. To disseminate knowledge on REMPEC’s work on MARPOL Annex VI and related issues in particular the implementation of the Road map for the possible designation of Med SOx ECA.
  3. To highlight the successes of the outcomes of the MTCC Africa Pilot Project on the Uptake of Port Energy Efficient Technologies and Operations.
