EcoLogistics: Low carbon freight for sustainable cities
Objective and activities
Urban freight contributions to GHG emissions are increasing. The corresponding mitigation capacities and actions need to increase as well. As a goal, this project will promote low carbon urban freight policies and practices (EcoLogistics) addressing climate change mitigation and the ambitions of NDCs. By highlighting EcoLogistics as a priority area for local and national governments the project will raise awareness, collect and develop policy recommendations, action plans and guide pioneering cities to exemplary action.
The project will strengthen institutional capacity through multi-stakeholder participation, develop an urban freight emission assessment tool, implement demonstration projects in cities, and suggest national policy recommendations. A project platform accessible globally will share knowledge on good practices and provide access to solution providers.
