IAPH partners with IMO in GreenVoyage2050 project
We are delighted to announce that IAPH has joined the IMO-Norway GreenVoyage2050 Project as a strategic partner. The GreenVoyage2050 Project is a partnership project between the Government of Norway and IMO aiming to transform the shipping industry towards a lower carbon future. It aims to support developing countries to meet their commitment towards relevant climate change and energy efficiency goals as specified in the IMO’s initial strategy on reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from ships. IAPH’s Technical Committees of port member experts will work alongside fellow GreenVoyage2050 partners on concrete deliverables that include the creation of workshop packages on sustainable ports and onshore power supply between now and the end of 2021. These workshops will then be rolled out at selected ports from 12 countries from Asia, Africa, Black Sea and Caspian Sea, Caribbean, Latin America and Pacific as part of the GreenVoyage2050 plan to expand port management capacities in those six priority regions. IAPH will join GreenVoyage2050 as part of a broad range of coordinated actions with a number of pilot countries and strategic national, regional and global partners.
