Negotiating Text (19/5/09).

As part of its work to include transport bunker fuels in the December 2009 Copenhagen climate change agreement, Seas At Risk has signed up to a joint-NGO submission to the International Civil Aviation Authority (ICAA).

A new direct action group - Ship of Fuels - has been created to raise the profile of shipping's contribution to climate change and to urge governments to include shipping in the global climate deal to be reached in Copenhagen in December.
