Today, during the UNFCCC COP 27 event taking place in Egypt, REMPEC is coordinating a side event on “Mediterranean efforts to reduce ship air pollution” as part of our participation to the Mediterranean Pavillon

The current momentum triggered by historical decisions taken by the Contracting Parties to the Convention for the Protection of the Marine Environment and the Coastal Region of the Mediterranean (Barcelona Convention) is accelerating the process toward ship air emissions reduction.  

This side event will be an opportunity to present the measures put in place, in cooperation with regional stakeholders to implement concrete activities defined in consultation with beneficiary countries to support their ratification and effective implementation of MARPOL Annex VI, which regulate globally the prevention of air pollution from ships. 

It aims to raise awareness on the regional synergy established to reduce ship air pollution in the Mediterranean region, through technical cooperation and capacity-building activities, including financial support and resource mobilization activities.

Coordinated by REMPEC, the event will be presented with the French Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs, PAMEx Presidency, the MEDports Association, WestMED Assistance Mechanism, LIFE4MEDECA project, IMO (Marine Environment Division) and UNEP MAP.
