      • Discover the content of the session: "Adapt to climate change"

      • The effects of global warming on the coastline, ports and estuaries are already visible and are likely to increase if we do not react in measures to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions. Beyond climate change mitigation actions, territories as well as infrastructure managers and service providers will have to adapt to climate change, and sometimes, locally, in a way that is disruptive compared to what has been done until now.
        The environmental transition of transport is an essential point in the mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions, because transport is the first concerned by gas emissions. This concerns both ports and inland waterways. Innovative solutions using new modes of propulsion or the use of data to reduce journeys are being studied.

        Nowadays the main subject in media is the global warming, the warming of the entire earth, proved by 0.75 C degrees increase in the average temperature over the last century and by the largest rate of warming in the last 30 years.

        The broad agreement among climate scientists is that the global temperatures will continue to increase leading to the global climate change of our planet Earth.

        Although along the time the planet Earth encountered natural alternating periods of warming and cooling, many scientific, research, technological, climate, atmospheric, meteorological, astronomical, geological, geodesy, geophysics, physics, chemical, biology, microbiology, coral reef, oceanographic, foresters, wildlife, medical, health, statistical etc. societies agree that the human activities have become a major source of the latest environmental change.

         

        The Governance of the Shipping Industry Under the European Climate Law: Confrontation versus Collaboration
        Shams Alhajjaji(4)

        This paper argues in favor of the interference of the European Central Bank (ECB) in the governance of the shipping industry as part of the implementation of the European Climate Law (ECL). Until 2019, both the IMO and the EU shared the same standard of emissions. The EU has always adopted IMO regulations and incorporated them within its directive to make them a binding power over its member states. However, paths of the IMO and the EU started to part with the adoption of the Green Deal.  In 2019, the Deal adopted a lower level of emission target for both 2030 and 2050 agendas. The EU has then decided to adopt a lower emission standard to reach a zero emission continent. This divergence will lead to two standards of governance (International levels, and the EU Levels). The EU’s decision to accelerate its steps beyond international endeavors imposes a challenge regarding the current legal framework, its applicability, and its institutions. Currently, The EC, the European Environmental Agency (EEA), the European Maritime Safety Agency (EMSA) are responsible for the draw of the general guidelines and the new ECL. They are considered as the head of the Deal.  This head should have two arms, which are the ECB, and the European Court of Justice. This paper focuses only on the ECB. It aims to assess the legal ability of the ECB to replace the current international legal institutions related to shipping. The ECB aims to achieve financial stability to stand economic shocks.

         

        Eco-designed ships and climate resilient naval shipyards

        Naval Group is committed to the maritime energy and ecological transition through strong CSR initiatives out of which 6 on environmental matters. They include the reduction of the carbon footprint, eco-design of ships, green technology options for customers, living conditions onboard, climate resilience, impact on biodiversity.

        Naval Group envisions to reduce by 5% per year its GHG emissions to fulfill the Paris Agreement commitments through energy consumption reduction on industrial sites, data center rationalization. Naval Group also evaluates the Carbone footprint of his ships.

        Naval Group leads an eco-design approach for 10 years and shares a R&D roadmap for green innovations with his partners on energy consumption control, energy management and storage, new fuels, hybrid and full electric propulsion, innovative architectures, hydrodynamics, energy generation incl. fuel cells. But also, innovations to reduce the environmental impact of ships, such as waste treatment, resources saving, underwater noise reduction.

        Climate resilience of the shipyards is a challenge addressed by Naval Group to propose resilient ships and infrastructures to his clients.

        Naval Group also contributed with the Cluster Maritime Français to the creation of the Maritime Eco-Energy Transition Institute.

        Challenges of coming decades out of compliance to strengthening regulation, will be the evolution of customers vision, needs and the shipyard’s missions linked to climate change.

        New technologies will lead energy management to be a competitive advantage.

         

        Impact of Climate Change on Coastal Morphological Evolution of Kadalur Periyakuppam coast, Tamilnadu using Geo-spatial Techniques and Field Measurements

        The coastal stretch of Kadalur Periya Kuppam (KPK), Tamil Nadu (South India) located to south of Palar River is highly dynamic in nature. This dynamic nature of the coastline is attributed to the frequent passage of cyclones and severe wave action. From previous studies it has been observed that the intensity of cyclones has increased over the last decades in the Bay of Bengal. During cyclones beach erosion has been observed in front of fisheries facilities located at KPK. The beach lost during the passage of cyclones Nilam (2012), Gaja (2013), Vardah (2016) etc; was not replenished to the original level leading to severe erosion.  National Institute of Ocean Technology (NIOT) has implemented the shore parallel segmented submerged breakwater made of sand filled geosynthetic tubes as an alternative for traditional rubble mound or concrete structures for protection of the coast. The solution was selected based on extensive field and desk studies. The studies included use of satellite imageries for analysis of historic shoreline changes, beach profiling for topography, bathymetry surveys and collection of grab samples for sedimentology. The present paper discusses the positive impact of the innovative technique adopted by NIOT for shore protection at KPK from measurements and its application for climate change adaptation and mitigation for the future.

        India’s large population and rapid industrialization in the coastal areas results increasing greenhouse gas emissions. The fossil fuel emissions have increased drastically in the last three decades. The anthropogenic input of greenhouse gases (GHG) such as CO2 and CH4 acts key contributors to climate change. The greenhouse emissions are measured in terms of the CO2 equivalents, referred as CO2 emissions. This study mainly focused on the increase concentration of CO2 gas, its causes and solution to reduce the carbon emission. The present study was carried out using the ship-based measurements of atmospheric CO2 concentrations and temperature from the coastal areas (includes major ports, harbor and ship transits) of east coast of India. The study has utilized two years data sets from the period of March 2020 to March 2022. It was observed that the CO2 concentration ranges from 350 to 550 ppm for the entire period. The maximum temperature was noticed during large concentration CO2. The maximum CO2 value was associated with the industrial emissions, major ports and harbor activities and ship freight operations. The study also exhibited massive change in the concentration of CO2 and temperature during the Covid-19 pandemic due to the country lockdown. The technology-based solutions can be achieved by adopting the bio-fuel energy utilization in the shipping industry which will result the emission reduction factor of five to six. Industrial research and development, policy making initiatives are cornerstone for GHG emissions reduction and successful sustainability strategy.
