“Good policy decisions require good research for evidence-based decision-making.” – Dr. Aldo Chircop
Many chemicals transported by sea are considered hazardous and noxious substances that can have significant impacts when spilled into the marine environment.
“Governing shipping in the Arctic is extremely complex and it requires collaboration and respect.” – Dr. Jackie Dawson
When a vessel is damaged, disabled or otherwise in distress at sea, finding a place of refuge – a place where it can be taken to prevent further damage to the vessel or pollution to the environment – can be critical.
