Decarbonising Transport in Emerging Economies
As of: August 2020
Objective and activities
This project will help emerging economies achieve their NDC commitments by establishing pathways to reduce transport CO2 emissions. ITF will 1) design a common assessment framework for transport emissions for all transport sectors and modes and tailor the assessment framework for each country of implementation, 2) increase or create the capacity of each country of implementation to evaluate their transport policies and revise their NDCs independently and 3) develop a pathway required to reduce transport carbon emissions that key stakeholders will agree on. Capacity building activities will ensure that partner institutions can revise NDC commitments independently in the 5-year review cycle. This will allow recurring, adequate data collection and the use/update of the assessment framework. Together with the Wuppertal Institute, this project will assess the feasibility of mitigation policies, focusing on potential synergies between climate change targets, SDGs and the New Urban Agenda.
