A Catalyst for Change
Target: The Republic of the Marshall Islands has set a policy target of reducing its transport emissions by 16% by 2025 and 27% in 2030 (2015 RMI INDC), the first Pacific country to make such a commitment.
MCST Framework
Vision/Goal: A center of excellence to prepare and implement a whole of country strategy to transition the Marshall Islands to a low carbon transport future as a pilot and catalyst for other Micronesian and small island states.
High Level Policy Unit
In 2014, RMI requested assistance from USP on the nexus between UNFCCC and the IMO in regard GHG emissions and reduction targets. Being profoundly impacted by the effects of climate change RMI was concerned that international shipping pays its “fair share” in emissions reduction.

Micronesia is a collection of over 2,000 islands in the South Pacific, covering almost three million square miles of ocean. It was settled thousands of years ago, and came into contact with European explorers in the 16th century. But one piece of technology was already in Micronesia long before the Europeans came: the map.
Message from the MCST Board Chair
Achieving the targets we have set ourselves is an ambitious undertaking and as the late Tony de Brum was fond of reminding us, 'time is not our friend'.

King Canute muses in the South Seas: Why aren’t Pacific Islands transitioning to low carbon sea transport futures?
