Objective and activities
The project supports the Chilean government in its role as COP Presidency in accelerating emission reductions in the transport sector and placing the decarbonisation of the transport sector on the international agenda. A Conference of Transport Ministers will be held under the framework of the COP25, which aims to draw up a joint declaration on the role of the transport sector in the NDCs and to monitor and operationalise its implementation in the COP presidency year of Chile in 2020. The declaration provides the political framework to develop more ambitious mitigation measures in Chile and incorporate them into the revised NDC. As a pioneer in Latin America, Chile will be supported in the development of a financing mechanism for electric mobility and piloting the mechanism. The financing mechanism serves to strengthen the private sector's investments in electric mobility and accelerate the deployment of charging infrastructure and / or the procurement of electric vehicles.
