IMO held port emissions training for Argentina

IMO says its work supporting countries to reduce emissions in ports has reached Argentina, the seventh country to benefit from a port emissions training package. Around 40 personnel working in the country's maritime sector underwent training on how to assess air emissions in ports and develop strategies to address emissions from different sources, at a workshop in Buenos Aires, Argentina (10-12 July).

The training took place under the strategic partnership between the IMO-run GloMEEP project on energy-efficiency and the International Association of Ports and Harbors (IAPH). The event was hosted by Prefectura Naval Argentina and delivered by a team of IMO consultants, including from the Port of Los Angeles.
