Carbon dioxide emissions from world aviation and maritime transport lately constitute round 5% of worldwide emissions. As world transport is predicted to stay on rising, emissions are projected to seriously develop in the years and many years to come back. Projections for 2050 point out that, beneath a business-as-usual situation, aviation and maritime transport shall be accountable for 10% to 33%, respectively, of worldwide carbon dioxide emissions.
If left unaddressed, those emissions will undermine different efforts made to restrict the build up of reasonable international temperature build up under 2°C in comparison to pre-industrial ranges.
On the thematic day devoted to transport at the Paris local weather convention, the European Commission hosts a facet match to permit for exchanges on the case for action to deal with emission discounts from the aviation and maritime sectors and on alternatives for world cooperation to percentage reports and spur action.
The match ‘Aviation/maritime – the case for action’ takes position in the EU Pavilion at COP21 on 3 December at 16:30–18:00. The high-level panel brings in combination audio system from the European Commission, Organisation for International Co-operation and Development (OECD), Marshall Islands, Dominican Republic and Kenya.
