IMO side event

Only arrived this morning and only just made it to the IMO side event where I was a panellist. Very short presentation from IMO and then questions for the panellists. I stressed the need for UNFCCC to set targets and timelines if IMO is to do anything this side of 2020, and pointed out the importance of real cuts inside the industry rather than relying on offsetting. The event was short but there was at least an exchange of views, unlike the heavily stage-managed ICAO aviation event that followed; if I was them I wouldn't want to be answering questions either.
