Shipping and the Environment II – From Regional to Global Perspectives
September 4 - September 6
International conference on the environmental impacts of shipping and their coupling to the development of maritime transport sector, policies and marine spatial planning. The conference is a joint event including Symposium on Scenarios and Policy Options for Sustainable Shipping, organised by the Interreg BSR CSHIPP platform, and Shipping and the Environment conference organised by Gothenburg Atmospheric Centre (GAC), International Surface Ocean – Lower Atmosphere Study (SOLAS) and BONUS secretariat.
Following the first S&E conference which took place in Gothenburg in October 2017, S&E II will provide forum where progress in understanding of impacts of the shipping on environment will be discussed along with policies and abatement strategies for achieving an environmentally sustainable shipping sector with respect to acceptable climate change, good air quality in coastal regions and good environmental status of marine and coastal land ecosystems along the Sustainable Development Goals ‘Good health and well-being’, ‘Life below the water’, ‘Life on land’ and ‘Climate action’. Papers addressing a wide range of topics related to environmental impacts of shipping on marine and terrestrial environment and climate, spanning from measurements, monitoring and compliance control of emissions, over modelling and field studies of impacts of shipping on the state of the environment to holistic impact studies, scenario developments and analyses of policies and abatement measures are welcome.
