NDC Transport Initiative for Asia

As of: March 2021

Rapid economic growth, together with a persistent trend towards urbanization and a rise of motorized transport are leading to an increase of traffic volumes in Asia. This leads to an increase of greenhouse gas emissions and severe air pollution. The NDC Transport Initiative for Asia, a joint program of seven organizations, promotes an integrated approach to the decarbonisation of transport. In each partner country, the initiative is supporting stakeholder processes and the development of measures for climate change mitigation. As a result, the project helps its partners to make their sectoral contributions to increase their NDCs, and to take a more ambitious approach to long-term strategies and the 2025 NDCs. As a regional initiative, the project shares its knowledge throughout Asia. At the global level, the program disseminates and exchanges insights within the UNFCCC process.
