The Global Maritime Energy Efficiency Partnerships (GloMEEP) Project, which aims to support increased uptake and implementation of energy-efficiency measures for shipping, was formally launched on 28 September 2015 in Singapore, at the IMO-Singapore Future-Ready Shipping 2015 conference.
GloMEEP is a GEF-UNDP-IMO project aimed at supporting the uptake and implementation of energy efficiency measures for shipping, thereby reducing greenhouse gas emissions from shipping.
The GloMEEP Project is being executed by a dedicated Project Coordination Unit (PCU) established within the Marine Environment Division of IMO. IMO is a specialized agency responsible for safe, secure and efficient shipping and the prevention of pollution from ships.
GloMEEP supports ten Lead Pilot Countries of the project to implement these measures, through:
- Legal, policy and institutional reforms
- Awareness raising and capacity-building activities
- Establishment of public-private partnerships to encourage technology transfer
The Lead Pilot Countries (LPCs) of the GloMEEP project are:
Argentina, China, Georgia, India, Jamaica, Malaysia, Morocco, Panama, Philippines and South Africa.
