International shipping decarbonisation is the subject of our new episode.
Maritime transport has tripled in 30 years: it represents 80% of world trade and accounts for 2% of greenhouse gas emissions. The evolution of this sector is therefore essential to fight against global warming. The discussion is taking place within the framework of the IMO, the International Maritime Organization, which is due to make more ambitious commitments in July 2023. The IPCC said last year that demand and kilometers traveled should be reduced, but the IMO has still not addressed the issue from this angle… How to move forward? Yann Briand answers questions from Sophie Larmoyer.

The ecological transition (energy or agro-ecological transition, development issues, etc.) is a subject of public policies. They are complex, sometimes underpinned by blockages or misunderstandings. At IDDRI, we propose possible solutions based on science. We put them on the democratic agenda because they are aimed at political and economic decision-makers, as well as at civil society as a whole. In these podcasts, IDDRI research fellows present their thoughts to shed light on the debate.
