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.
In July 2011, mandatory technical and operational energy efficiency measures were adopted by Parties to MARPOL Annex VI and subsequently entered into force on 1 January 2013. These regulations made mandatory both the Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI) for certain types of new ships, and the Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan (SEEMP) for all 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; and
- 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.
