TRANSfer III - Facilitating the development of ambitious transport mitigation actions
As of: May 2021
Transport accounts for 27 per cent of energy-related CO2 emissions. Especially in emerging economies and developing countries, these emissions are rapidly growing. To increase their efforts in fostering climate-friendly transport, TRANSfer supports these countries in facilitating the development of implementable mitigation measures, which also contribute to their respective NDCs. The project serves as “Mitigation Action Preparation Facility” and follows a multi-donor approach to expand its support to even more countries. The project’s focus is on the development of a set of effective measures in five countries and an acquisition of matching funds. The project also supports selected measures in their early phase of implementation. Toolkits help to constantly improve and accelerate the project activities. International learning processes will foster an increase of the ambition level. As a result, the project activities potentially have a mitigation impact of at least 60 Million tonnes CO2 over ten years.
