MTCC Asia Workshop on GHG Emissions Reduction  

With enormous support from IMO and EU, a Workshop on GHG Emissions Reduction was successfully organized by Shanghai Maritime University (MTCC-Asia), China Ministry of Transport and Communications, Department of Marine Administration of Myanmar, and Myanmar Maritime University from 15th – 17th July 2020 in Shanghai, China. 31 participants from Bangladesh, Cambodia, India, Myanmar, Malaysia, Thailand, and China attended the conference. Through reviewing the global shipping dynamics during the period of COVID-19, the workshop covering the current needs analysis, challenges, and solutions for GHG control and EE was arranged. This was to help achieve several long-term goals relating to raising awareness of energy efficiency policies and technologies in the maritime industries, and implementation of IMO instruments and methodologies on Energy Efficiency to help mitigate climate change.

The webinar workshop was successful in facilitating technological exchanges and promotions, and also provided vital experience in running online workshops, which serves as a useful precedent when considering that future workshops will be conducted in a similar manner owing to the COVID-19 circumstances.
