Addressing port emissions in South Africa

South Africa are the latest country to receive training on the “Prevention and control of shipping and port air emissions” (6-8 June). This three-day workshop, developed in collaboration with the International Association of Ports and Harbors (IAPH), aims to train participants in how to conduct a port emissions assessment and develop emission reduction strategies accordingly.

South Africa also shared the current air quality monitoring initiatives which are in place across several ports in the country, and discussed how these could be further developed in the future. Over 40 participants attended the training, hosted by South Africa’s Department of Transport and SAMSA, and delivered by a team of consultants from the Port of Los Angeles and the Port of Long Beach.
