This project will develop programs in six countries from two sub-regions to start the transition from internal combustion engine to electric and non-motorized 2&3 wheelers, to reduce transport emissions. The project will see to a transformative integration of electric 2&3 wheelers into existing urban transport modes via a comprehensive policy framework and replicate this to other countries in the sub-regions, as a first step towards a general shift to electric mobility. A global transition stands to reduce road transport emissions by at least 1.5 Gt of CO2. This intervention directly impacts the population of the countries by reducing air pollution, improving national energy security, creating green jobs and helping to reduce poverty and inequality. Activities will be divided into three key components: I. Planning and project baseline setting II. Policy design (stakeholder mobilization, pilots, technical assessments, awareness, etc.) III. Knowledge management and policy replication.
