The International Maritime Organization has set out plans to develop a basket of mid-term decarbonisation measures that will include technical and carbon-pricing elements.

The plan was agreed at an Intersessional Working Group on the Reduction of Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Ships.

The working group’s agreements will be now discussed at a Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC) meeting in June.

The working group also made some progress on developing concrete proposals for the mid-term measures.
