Time To Act

7 October 2011

Panama Canal: In traditional Panamanian dress, campaigners with the message Time to Act (Es Hora de Actuar) highlighted options to tackling emissions from international shipping – which are twice that of Australia and climbing – that were on the agenda at the UN climate talks in Panama. The talks are the last before

government ministers meet in Durban, South Africa for the annual climate summit (COP17) at the end of the year.
Advocacy organizations claimed establishing a price on carbon pollution from shipping would both cut emissions
and help pay for the impacts of climate change that disproportionately hit poor countries.
