Ask the Author: "Decarbonisation, Coastal Shipping and Multimodal Transport"
In this 30-minute online presentation and question and answer session, author Olaf Merk presents the new ITF report “Decarbonisation, Coastal Shipping and Multimodal Transport”.
Coastal shipping – maritime transport that takes place between ports on the same continent – represents around half of the global shipping market. It is also crucial to the connectivity of island regions and regional development. Decarbonising coastal shipping presents both challenges and opportunities, as does the growing concentration of ownership in the maritime transport sector. This report outlines the most pressing challenges the coastal shipping sector currently faces and provides governments and policy makers with concrete actions to help address them.
