MWskypeOn July 17, CCCL Fellow Meredith Wilensky presented via Skype to the Second International Sustainable Sea Transport in the Pacific Talanoa in Suva Fiji. This conference addresses transport issues unique to the Pacific islands and aims to bring together key stakeholders to facilitate planning for improving sustainability within the industry.

Meredith’s presentation was based on the white paper, Authority of Pacific Island States to Regulate Greenhouse Gases from the International Shipping Sector, which she authored earlier this year. The presentation focused on how international law constrains states’ jurisdiction to regulate international shipping and provided strategies and regulatory options for Pacific island states to develop effective regulation within those constraints. The full text of the white paper is available on the CCCL publications page here.
