Thank you Mr./Madam Co-Chair,
I am Harshita Bisht, speaking on behalf of Climate Action Network.
While a credible response to the climate crisis requires every sector to contribute, international transport emissions have more than doubled since Kyoto.
The Paris Agreement should urge IMO and ICAO to set strong interim targets to help meet the 1.5°C goal. These bodies must adopt strict criteria for alternative fuels; work on adaptation finance; and include their progress on carbon pricing and CO2 standards in COP reporting.
