Recommendations for APA Items 3, 5 and 6 as they relate to bunkers targets outside of the scope of NDCs
Prepared for the Bonn Climate Change Conference 8 – 18 May 2017
International aviation and shipping emissions, referred to as bunkers emissions, are principally dealt with under the UN processes of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and the International Maritime Organization (IMO) respectively.
However, they also significantly interact with the Paris Agreement. International emissions are clearly anthropogenic and the Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation (CORSIA) through the scheme’s reference to potential eligibility of UNFCCC offsets. At the same time, IMO is under pressure to address the sector’s emissions which will equally impact progress towards UNFCCC goals.
Guidance under the Paris Agreement must ensure that bunkers targets outside of the national targets are accurately tracked and accounted for and do not undermine the achievement of nationally determined contributions (NDCs).
