Investigating energy-related port investments in developing countries

International Association of Ports & Harbors commissions study

The International Association of Ports & Harbors (IAPH) has commissioned a study of ports in selected countries from Africa, South America, the Indian Subcontinent, Asia and the Pacific Islands Region to investigate energy-related port investments.

The study will be presented to the Intersessional Working Group and submitted ahead of IMO’s 82nd Marine Environment Protection Committee session later this year.

The study will aim to establish and quantify the kind of infrastructure that will be required to ensure their inclusion in the energy transition of shipping.

Managing Director Patrick Verhoeven commented: “Ahead of the next Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC 82) at the IMO, we expect exploratory discussions to take place at the Intersessional Working Group on Greenhouse Gas Emissions on the topic of a market-based measure. As a contribution to this process, IAPH has commissioned a study that will look at identifying potential energy-related investments that will be required in port infrastructure of developing countries to reflect the updated 2023 IMO Strategy on Reduction of GHG Emissions from Ships.”
