In this document it is stressed the importance of quickly agreeing a long-term target and reduction pathway for GHG emissions from international shipping that is consistent with the goals of the Paris Agreement, the urgent need to identify and implement immediate near-term measures that will result in early peaking of emissions, the importance of including within the GHG strategy an overhauled EEDI consistent with decarbonization of the fleet in the second half of the century, and the need to assess the impacts on vulnerable States in parallel with the consideration of final measures.
