IMO has announced the first two institutes selected to host regional Maritime Technology Cooperation Centres (MTCCs) as part of its EU-funded project to help mitigate the harmful effects of climate change.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}Under the Global MTTC Network (GMN) initiative, Shanghai Maritime University in China will host the MTCC for the Asia region (MTCC-Asia), while the University of Trinidad and Tobago will host MTCC-Caribbean.

Three further MTCCs will be established in other target regions – Africa, Latin America and the Pacific – to form a global network.

The five regional MTCCs will aim to deliver mutually-agreed project milestones over a three-year period, to contribute to IMO’s efforts to ensure effective implementation and enforcement of global energy-efficiency regulations for international shipping.

The MTCCs will receive allocations from €10 million in European Union funding available for the project, which is focused on enabling developing countries, especially Least Developed Countries and Small Island Developing States, in the target regions to effectively implement energy-efficiency measures through technical assistance, capacity building and technical cooperation.{/mprestriction}
