The International Maritime Organisation (IMO) is debating measures to decarbonise the international shipping sector.

I am delivering a training programme for delegates to the IMO from Small Island Developing States, Least Developed Countries, and African States.

The programme aims to enhance delegates' capacity and strengthen their informed participation and decision-making in IMO negotiations.
