The webinar aims to discuss recent and upcoming IMO legislation targeting reduction of emissions of pollutants and climate impact from international shipping. CSHIPP has synthesised the findings of several European projects focusing on the implementation of policy-based and technological abatement measures for clean and sustainable shipping, their environmental benefits and trade-offs and their business potential.
At this webinar we will discuss the impacts of the selected policies, assess the technical options available for the shipping sector to comply with their targets, options of the international community to enforce the legislation in a way that ensures compliance, and the benefits of these environmental measures for air quality, water quality, and climate, including human health and well-being. Another aim is to identify major knowledge gaps and to discuss potential solutions.
Prior to the webinar, participants will receive background material for the discussions, which was developed in CSHIPP. Each of the three sessions of the webinar will include 20 min discussion of the session’s topics. Input from the participants is important for the final synthesis report and a policy brief on clean shipping policies which will be prepared by CSHIPP.
The webinar is free of charge, however, registration is needed to obtain the webinar link and the participant’s code. Deadline for registration is 26 November 13.00 CET, click HERE for further information and registration.
