       国际海事组织(IMO)表示,加拿大政府提供财政资助50万加元(约合39.3万美元),以支持Polar Code(极地水域船舶航行安全规则)和联合国可持续发展目标。

       11月23日,IMO秘书长林基泽(Kitack Lim)和加拿大驻英国高级官员Janice Charette在IMO总部伦敦共同签署了合作谅解备忘录。

       据悉,谅解备忘录旨在根据极地水域船舶航行国际准则(即Polar Code),为极地海域的船员提供培训项目。

       Polar Code于2017年1月1日生效,为极地航行船舶设立了包括船舶设计、建造、设施、运营、训练和环境保护等全方面的强制性规定。

       该倡议下,加拿大政府同意资助四个地区性培训工作坊,以更好地施行Polar Code,同时委派IMO作为管理和执行活动的专责机构。

       此外,财政资助也将用于2030年联合国可持续发展目标(SDGs)相关活动,尤其是可持续发展海洋和海洋资源的SDG 14。

IMO: Canada Provides Financial Support for Polar Code

The Government of Canada has provided a financial contribution of CAD 500,000 (around USD 393,000) in an effort to support the Polar Code and sustainable development goals, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) said.

Kitack Lim, IMO Secretary-General and Janice Charette, Canada’s High Commissioner to the United Kingdom, signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) at IMO Headquarters in London on November 23.

As explained, the MoU aims to deliver training programs for seafarers on board ships operating in polar waters, in line with The International Code for Ships Operating in Polar Waters, better known as the Polar Code.

The code, which entered into force on January 1, 2017, sets out mandatory standards that cover the full range of design, construction, equipment, operational, training and environmental protection matters for ships making polar voyages.

Under this initiative, Canada agrees to finance four regional train-the-trainer workshops on the implementation of the Polar Code and assign IMO as the responsible agency for the management and execution of these activities.

The financial support will also go towards activities related to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), in particular SDG 14, which addresses life below water.
