Support to Member States


​The Marine Environment Division supports Member States in the implementation of the provisions of IMO Conventions through technical cooperation activities under IMO's Integrated Technical Cooperation Programme (ITCP) and through the execution of donor-funded major projects. Both technical cooperation activities and major project aim to help Member States, and in particular developing countries, to improve their ability to comply with international rules and standards relating to prevention and control of marine pollution from ships, giving priority to technical assistance programmes that focus on human resources development and institutional capacity building.
