Facility for Environmentally-Friendly Transport Technology and Measures (TRANSfer I)

As of: August 2019

Objective and activities

The TRANSfer project aimed at enabling decision-makers in developing countries to develop climate change mitigation measures in the transport sector as nationally appropriate mitigation actions (NAMAs). A team of experts advised the transport ministries in Indonesia, Colombia and South Africa in selecting and prioritising suitable mitigation measures and preparing them as NAMAs. In addition to providing technical advice, the project held workshops and commissioned studies. Furthermore, the project worked closely with the countries’ planning and/or environment ministries as well as authorities at sub-national level. A handbook entitled ‘Navigating Transport NAMAs was developed to spread the experience around the world. This handbook includes practical experiences and was updated regularly (www.transport-namas.org). Experience gained through the TRANSfer project was actively incorporated into UNFCCC negotiations to ensure transport issues were given greater consideration.

Successor project(s)
Towards Climate-Friendly Transport Technologies and Measures (TRANSfer II)
TRANSfer III - Facilitating the development of ambitious transport mitigation actions

State of implementation/results

  • In all partner countries mitigation measures in transport have been elaborated as NAMAs. The topics reach from sustainable urban transport, to the heavy duty vehicle fleet and mass rapid transit.
  • With support of the project, two NAMA Facility proposals have been prepared and selected for further support (Indonesia and Peru).
  • The support of the Partnership on Sustainable Low Carbon Transort (SLoCaT) strengthened transport in international fora, inter alia through Side Events on diverse COPs.
