Shipping and aviation is specifically mentioned in the latest draft document dated October 20, 2015 from the preliminary negotiations before a final global climate deal is set to be signed in Paris in early December. Negotiations take place this week in Bonn, Germany.

Mercan-Ellen Nielsen, the climate chief negotiator for Denmark, tells ShippingWatch that the most realistic compromise to be reached in Paris is likely to cover all sectors and not specifically highlight shipping and aviation. Nor does she expect the final climate deal to include specific targets for reduction or a concrete time plan.
