India is the latest country to benefit from International Maritime Organization (IMO)'s new three-day training package on assessing air emissions in ports and strategies to address emissions from various sources.
Thirty-five Indian maritime officials from maritime administrations, port authorities, port terminals and academia are taking part in the workshop in Mumbai (15-17).
The training package was developed under IMO's GloMEEP energy-efficiency project, in collaboration with the International Association of Ports and Harbors (IAPH).
It supports countries in quantifying emissions in ports through the development of port emissions assessments (both ocean and land-based, including emissions from cargo handling equipment, trucks, rail etc.) and providing guidance on how to develop strategies for port emission reduction.
The event was hosted by the Directorate General of Shipping and Indian Register
of Shipping and delivered by a team of IMO consultants.
