Denmark has donated DKK 200,000 for the United Nations’ International Maritime Organization (IMO). The money is intended to assist all countries in complying with the IMO requirements on ballast water management and CO2 emissions.

DKK 200,000 from the Danish Foreign Ministry’s program for developing countries has just been sent to the IMO headquarters in London. Here, the money is to contribute to ensuring that all the member states are capable of meeting the requirements of the organization on ballast water management and CO2 emissions. The early Christmas present is, inter alia, to be spent on the holding of capacity-building workshops so that developing countries become capable of meeting the new requirements on the energy efficiency of ships.

The money is also to contribute to the development of a manual entitled “Ballast water management – how to do it.” The manual is to support all countries in complying with the provisions of the convention on the cleaning of ballast water and, thus, to protect against invasive species from ships’ ballast water.
