[GloMEEP] Port Emissions Toolkit Guide No.1: Assessment of Port Emissions

This guide is intended to serve as a resource guide for ports intending to develop or improve their air pollutant and/or GHG emissions assessments. This guide builds on and updates previous work of IAPH and its members, incorporating the latest emissions inventory methods and approaches. Recognising that ships do not operate independently from shore-based entities in the maritime transportation system, port emissions considerations therefore must extend beyond the ships themselves to include all port-related emissions sources including: seagoing vessels, domestic vessels, cargo handling equipment, heavy-duty vehicles, locomotives and electrical grid. This guide is intended to be relevant to users at different levels of experience, from those just beginning the emissions inventory process, to those having extensive experience with developing port-related emissions assessments. This guide focuses on planning and key decision steps related to port emissions assessments. As the technical methods for estimating activity levels and related emissions from port-related sources continue to be updated and improved, this guide also points the reader to those organisations and ports that are at the forefront of emissions inventories, metrics and forecasts and, through their published work, provide up-to-date methods and proxy data for the development of port emissions assessments (Published in 2018).
