Supporting climate strategies in countries where motorisation is rapidly increasing
As of: February 2021
Transport sectors worldwide generate large quantities of greenhouse gases. The project supports developing countries to systematically record and reduce emissions in the transport sector so that the sectoral contribution to achieving the NDCs and long-term strategies is as high as possible. The project supports the development of climate protection strategies in the transport sector in the partner countries. At the same time, it strengthens methods for data collection and evaluation. The project promotes global exchange on transport data, emission factors and data management. It feeds methodological approaches into UN Climate Secretariat initiatives and coordinates them with other donors. Through regional ambition dialogues and cooperation with multipliers such as the NDC Partnership, the project makes project results available to other developing countries and emerging economies. A newly established secretariat as a platform for an international power-to-X network promotes the decarbonization of aviation and shipping.
State of implementation/results
In Viet Nam, the project supported the Ministry of Transport to systematically compile a greenhouse gas inventory for the transport sector. The mitigation scenarios are used in the update of the Vietnamese NDC (www.changing-transport.org/…).
- In Kenya, the project supported the Kenyan Ministry of Transport in the establishment of a Climate Change Coordination Unit. With the support of the project, the unit prepared the first Transport Sector Climate Change Annual Report 2018/2019 (www.changing-transport.org/…).
- In Morocco, 18 scenarios were calculated for eight climate change mitigation measures in the transport sector. The Moroccan Minister of Transport uses this for the NDC update at the end of 2020
- As part of the MobiliseYourCity partnership an Emissions Calculator was developed (www.changing-transport.org/…).
- The project supports the establishment of the PtX Hub (www.ptx-hub.org).
