French resource to develop a national ship emission reduction strategy

The IMO-Norway GreenVoyage2050 Project’s Guide for the ‘Development of a national ship emissions reduction strategy’ is now available in French. The publication is one of a number of free resources, which are also available in English and Spanish, and aims to provide a structured framework and decision support tool for evaluating emissions reduction opportunities in maritime transport.

The Guide for the Development of a national ship emissions reduction strategy’ (SET Guide No. 3) supports countries in developing a national ship emissions reduction strategy that can guide potential policy and investment options.

It is one of three complementary Guides in the Ship Emissions Toolkit series, offering guidance to countries seeking to develop and strengthen national policy and regulatory frameworks related to the prevention of air pollution and the reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from ships.

The other publications in the Ship Emission Toolkit series (currently only available in English and Spanish) are:

SET Guide No.1 – Rapid assessment of ship emissions in the national context: This offers guidance for conducting a rapid assessment and generating both quantitative and qualitative information about a country’s maritime emissions status at the time of analysis.

SET Guide No.2 – Incorporation of MARPOL Annex VI into national law: This provides useful information for policy makers and legislators in countries preparing for accession to the 1997 Protocol or for contracting Parties to the 1997 Protocol which have not yet developed the legal framework to implement the regulations in MARPOL Annex VI in the domestic legislation.

The toolkit was developed by the GEF-UNDP-IMO Global Maritime Energy Efficiency Partnerships (GloMEEP) Project, in collaboration with its strategic partner, the Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology (IMarEST). They are now hosted by the IMO-Norway GreenVoyage2050 Project which builds on the work of the GloMEEP Project.
