Awareness materials

The GloBallast Programme places a high priority on raising awareness about the problem of harmful aquatic organisms transported in ships’ ballast water. Several of the awareness raising products produced by the programme are available as PDF files below. These may also be ordered as full size hard copies free-of-charge from the Project Coordination Unit, at jalonso@imo.orgPlease note that regrettably there are no more hard copies of the posters available from the PCU. However, interested parties are welcome to download and print copies from these pdf files.
