Maritime Week: MPA, IMO launch NextGEN Connect

Through the platform, stakeholders can jointly develop solutions for maritime decarbonisation.

The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) and the International Maritime Organization (IMO) have launched NextGEN Connect, a collaborative platform where stakeholders can jointly develop solutions for maritime decarbonisation.

The initiative, which is part of the NextGEN project, was launched during the IMO-Singapore Future of Shipping Conference on Day 3 of the Singapore Maritime Week 2022.

Since its launch in September 2021, more than 150 decarbonisation projects and over 500 stakeholders have been listed in the NextGEN database.

Stakeholders who have proposals on how to develop a route-based action plan to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions between specific points along a shipping route in the Asia-Pacific region can submit theirs at nextgen.imo.org/challenge.

In addition to the NextGEN Connect, the preparatory phase of the IMO Coordinated Actions to Reduce Emissions from Shipping (IMO CARES) Technical Cooperation Framework was also launched during the conference.

Once completed, IMO CARES will gather stakeholders and streamline existing programmes to drive green technologies and their global deployment in developing regions.
