 An International Maritime Organization (IMO) workshop is raising awareness of the organization’s regulatory regime dealing with improving energy efficiency and the control of GHG emissions from ships. 

 
Participants from Moroccan governmental departments, port authorities and maritime training institutes are attending the three-day “MARPOL Annex VI and Technology Transfer” workshop, taking place in Rabat, Morocco (19-21 July).
 
The event is the latest in a line of workshops organized under IMO’s GloMEEP project, which is supporting uptake and implementation of energy efficiency measures for shipping in developing countries. 
 
Morocco is one of the 10 GloMEEP lead pilot countries.
 
Additionally, Morocco is holding the First National Task Force meeting (21 July) to endorse the National Work Plan of activities under the GloMEEP project for the coming two years, which will include decisions on which bodies will be responsible for different GloMEEP activities.​
