The MTCC-Pacific is one the five centres that form the Global MTCC Network (GMN), a project aiming at building the capacity of developing countries for climate mitigation in the maritime shipping industry. This project is funded by the European Union (EU) and implemented by the International Maritime Organization (IMO). MTCC-Pacific is hosted by the Pacific Community (SPC) in collaboration with the Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme (SPREP). Fiji is the MTCC-Pacific Host Country.


The Regional Workshop will gather the Heads of Maritime and Energy departments of Pacific Islands Countries and territories as well as partners involved in this area to take stock of MTCC-Pacific results and achievements. They will be in position to discuss progress and priorities from the first MTCC-Pacific regional workshop and recent international and regional developments leading to consider GHG emissions reduction targets and how the energy and transport sectors contribute to achieve the countries’ National Determined Contributions (NDCs).
