IMO is seeking Lead Pilot Countries (LPCs) to participate in the upcoming GloNoise Partnership project, which aims to address the issue of underwater noise from shipping. The project is currently in a preparatory phase and is expected to launch in mid-2023, subject to approval and funding by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the Global Environment Facility (GEF). If approved, the project is expected to receive $2 million in funding under the GEF International Waters focal area, and will be executed by IMO over a period of two years.
The GloNoise Partnership will focus on building capacity in developing countries to implement the ‘Guidelines for the reduction of underwater noise from commercial shipping to address adverse impacts on marine life’ (MEPC.1-Circ.833 2014).
IMO will prioritize selection of developing countries to become LPCs and is hoping to achieve a balanced global geographical distribution. LPCs will be expected to take a championing role in their respective regions.
Member States and Associate Members can learn more about the project, including becoming an LPC, in Circular Letter No.4614. The deadline for expressions of interest to become an LPC is 16 October 2022.
