NDC Transport Initiative for Asia
As of: August 2020
Objective and activities
The NDC Transport Initiative for Asia is a joint project of seven organisations and will engage in China, India and Vietnam. It aims at promoting a comprehensive approach on decarbonizing transport, i.e. a coherent strategy of effective policies that are coordinated among various sector ministries, civil society and the private sector. In each of the partner countries, the consortium supports countries in facilitating and informing these stakeholder processes and in developing selected climate actions. This enables partners to make a sectoral contribution towards achieving their NDCs and increase ambition in transport sections of long-term strategies and 2025 NDCs. As a regional initiative, the programme also disseminates knowledge in Asia. The consortium connects with regional stakeholders and other Asian countries in order to encourage taking a comprehensive approach to decarbonize transport. On global level the programme will disseminate and share experiences in the UNFCCC process.
