Global Maritime Energy Efficiency Partnerships Project (GloMEEP)


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.   

GloMEEP supports ten Lead Pilot Countries (LPCs) of the project to implement these measures, through:

  1. Legal, Policy and Institutional Reforms (LPIR): This component will support LPCs in undertaking national LPIR activities for effective implementation of IMO's energy efficiency regulations, as well as acting as catalysts for increased ratification of these regulations by other developing countries at a global scale;
  2. Maritime Sector Energy Efficiency Capacity Building, Awareness Raising, Knowledge Creation and Dissemination: This component aims to enhance awareness and capacity to ratify, implement and enforce IMO's energy efficiency regulations, as well as foster the uptake of ship operational and design energy efficiency measures in the LPCs; and
  3. Public-Private Partnerships to Catalyse Maritime Sector Energy Efficiency Innovation, R&D and Technology Deployment: This primarily aims to catalyse the involvement of private sector in maritime sector energy efficiency activities in developing countries through knowledge‑sharing, international forums and collaborative pilot efforts in technology assessment and deployment.

The Lead Pilot Countries (LPCs) of the GloMEEP Project are: Argentina, China, Georgia, India, Jamaica, Malaysia, Morocco, Panama, Philippines and South Africa.
