MTCC-Caribbean 1st National Workshop (1st Sub-regional), Jamaica
Type of activity:
National Workshop and Sub-regional Workshop
The Courtleigh Hotel & Suites, Kingston, Jamaica
This workshop was the first of six sub-regional (national) workshops with specific objective to facilitate capacity building in the region by working with the maritime administrations, port authorities, relevant government departments and related stakeholders to facilitate compliance with international regulations on energy efficiency for ships.
The 1st Northern Sub-Regional Workshop served as a medium for the exchange of knowledge, ideas and experiences concerning the reduction of emissions from ships.
Key outcomes of the workshop included the confirmation of the results of preliminary data gathered via the needs analysis and working group sessions of the 1st regional workshop. These results concern the legal and institutional baseline of each territory with respect to implementation of MARPOL Annex VI. Another notable outcome was the initiation of the process of adopting MTCC Caribbean’s data collection form in each territory throughout the region via maritime administrations and stakeholders.
