Decarbonising Transport in Emerging Economies
As of: September 2021
The transport sector is accounts for a significant share of greenhouse gas emissions in emerging economies. Reducing GHG emissions in this sector will contribute significantly to reach the respective NDCs. Therefore, the project is developing an evaluation system for transport emissions that is tailored to the individual partner country. Besides that, the project is building resources and developing skills for the evaluation of transport policy strategies and the independent review of NDCs in partner countries. Building on this, the project will draft a plan for partner countries to mitigate GHG emissions from the transport sector. The project activities should enable partner countries to revise their NDCs independently in line with the five-year ambition mechanism defined in the Paris Agreement. Against the backdrop of climate mitigation goals, SDGs, and the New Urban Agenda, the project evaluates the feasibility of transport policies together with the Wuppertal Institute.
State of implementation/results
- The transport and CO2 assessment frameworks are currently being developed for all four partner countries, in cooperation with local stakeholders.
- For each country, reports that outline the current specific challenges for transport decarbonisation have been published by early 2021. These documents benefited from information gathered via project kick-off events, in-country missions and further stakeholder workshops and events in each of the countries. The documents were reviewed by national authorities of the project countries and were (partly) presented in so-called ‘Ask the author’ webinars.
