Singapore, Norway and IMO sign maritime decarbonisation MoU

The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA), International Maritime Organization (IMO) and Ministry of Climate and Environment of Norway have signed an MoU to accelerate maritime decarbonisation in developing countries.

The trio will undertake technical cooperation activities to assist developing countries in their efforts to reduce emissions from ships and in ports.

Participants will work together to exchange experience, knowledge and best practice, and undertake joint resource mobilization with a view to cooperate and collaborate on actions to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from ships and the activities of ships in ports, within the frameworks of the NextGEN Connect initiative and the GreenVoyage2050 Project.

The NextGEN Connect initiative, established between the IMO and the MPA in April 2022, aims to bring industry, academia and global research centres together, to offer inclusive solutions for maritime decarbonisation for trials along shipping routes.

The IMO-Norway GreenVoyage2050 Project was established in May 2019 by the IMO, with funding from the Government of Norway to support developing countries, including Small Islands Developing States (SIDS) and Least Developed Countries (LDCs), in their efforts to implement the Initial IMO Strategy on the Reduction of GHG Emissions from Ships.
