The International Association of Ports and Harbors (IAPH) joins the GEF-UNDP-IMO GloMEEP Project as Strategic Partner.

IAPH will assist the GloMEEP Lead Pilot Countries (LPCs) in addressing air pollutants and greenhouse gas emissions in ports, thereby facilitating a transition to a more energy efficient and low emissions maritime transport system.

In particular, IAPH will be collaborating with the GloMEEP Project on the development of tools and materials that will support GloMEEP LPCs in quantifying air pollutants and GHG emissions in ports as well as assist in the identification of measures to cost-effectively reduce port related emissions.

IAPH joins the GloMEEP Project as third Strategic Partner, following the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) and the Institute of Marine Engineering, Science & Technology (IMarEST).
