Good to see the shipping industry will be joining the waterborne transport infrastructure sector and others from #WeAreTransport in attending COP23.

‘Ambition 1.5oC: Global Shipping’s Action Plan’ summit at COP23 will gather 150-200 industry representatives and UNFCCC delegates to take action and create an Action Plan for the decarbonisation of the shipping industry. The summit will take place on 13 November 2017, in Bonn, onboard the RheinFantasie river vessel.  For more information, see https://www.green4sea.com/industry-to-join-forces-on-decarbonisation-at-cop23/ 

The European Commission has launched a consultation on the revision of its policy on the monitoring, reporting and verification (MRV) of CO2 emissions from maritime transport.

A new international standard on resilience is now available.  ISO 22316 (2017) published by the International Organization for Standardization is intended to help organisations improve their ability to absorb and adapt to a changing environment in turn ensuring they can continue to deliver their objectives and to survive and prosper.  According to the ISO (https://www.iso.org/obp/ui/#iso:std:iso:22316:ed-1:v1:en) more resilient organisations can anticipate and respond to threats and opportunities, arising from sudden or gradual changes in their internal and external context – for example the changing climate.

Navigating a Changing Climate welcomes three new supporter organisations: SLoCaT, the Port of London Authority and the European Maritime Pilots’ Association. 

The NavClimate partners look forward to engaging with these organisations as we take forward our work to support the inland and maritime navigation infrastructure sector in responding to climate change.

#NavClimate Interviews

The Navigating a Changing Climate initiative has been conducting interviews with stakeholders of ports and waterborne infrastructure to discuss the challenges and solutions to climate change mitigation and adaption.

 

The Navigating a Changing Climate initiative’s conference subtitled ‘Moving towards low carbon and resilient waterborne transport infrastructure’ took place in Brussels on 27th and 28th March 2017.

The conference was recorded by the Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology on behalf of the Think Climate coalition.

In addition to the video records, a conference report from this informative and thought-provoking event was produced, which:

  • highlights the key messages from the conference
  • provides a summary of the presentations
  • includes links to speakers abstracts and bios; to their PowerPoint presentations; and to the video recordings
  • presents the outcomes of an ad hoc lunchtime discussion on energy sources and emissions from waterborne transport
