Description


"Environmental Impacts of International Shipping: The Role of Ports" Edited by Nils Axel Braathen
OECD | 17 Feb 2011 | ISBN: 9264096825 | 146 pages | PDF | 2 MB

The book provides examples of the environmental problems related to port activities such as air pollution and emissions of greenhouse gases, water pollution, noise, spread of invasive species, etc. and highlights a number of different policy instruments that can be used to limit the negative impacts. It is a valuable resource for policy makers and researchers alike.



While efficient ports are vital to the economic development of their surrounding areas, the related ship traffic, the handling of the goods in the ports and the hinterland distribution can cause a number of negative environmental impacts.

This book examines the environmental impacts of international maritime transport, and looks more in detail at the impacts stemming from near-port shipping activities, the handling of the goods in the ports and from the distribution of the goods to the surrounding regions. It focuses on five ports: Los Angeles and Long Beach, California, the United States; Rotterdam, the Netherlands; Port MetroVancouver, Canada; and Busan, Korea.
