UN CC:Learn Partners Welcome IMO in the Partnership!
Did you know that international shipping is the most energy efficient mode of mass transport? However, as sea transport will continue growing apace with world trade, a global approach to further improve its energy efficiency and effective emission control is needed. The International Maritime Organization (IMO) has been energetically pursuing the limitation and reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from international shipping, in recognition of the magnitude of the climate change challenge and the intense focus on this topic. As such, it works both on setting standards for the industry, as well as provide training for countries to implement them. The UN CC:Learn partners are happy to welcome IMO in their midst, given it provides climate change training in this critical sector.
