IMO CARES: Addressing emission reduction and green technologies in Latin America

Source: IMO A virtual workshop on maritime decarbonization and Research and Development (R&D) in Latin America and globally was held in Panama (9 February). The workshop was organized by the IMO Coordinated Actions to Reduce Emissions from Shipping (IMO CARES) project and MTCC-Latin America with the aim of highlighting the role of green technologies in achieving more sustainable shipping.  Maritime experts and sector specialist speakers discussed green energies and technologies (such as wind propulsion systems and solar energy); alternatives fuels (such as ammonia and hydrogen); the relevance of innovation, research and data collection to tackle emissions; the need for financial investments and collaboration withing stakeholders; and the importance of capacity building and inclusion, so no one is left behind in the journey towards decarbonization in the Latin America region and internationally.   Over 200 participants from around the world also learned about how the IMO CARES project can help to support technology transfer globally, by bringing together stakeholders in the maritime sector and technology providers to help solving challenges in the work towards emission reductions.   The objective of the IMO CARES project is to link the research and development initiatives in the Global North and the Global South to accelerate demonstration of green technologies and promote
