Towards Climate-Friendly Transport Technologies and Measures (TRANSfer II)
As of: January 2020
Objective and activities
The objective of the TRANSfer project was to support developing countries to develop and implement climate change mitigation strategies in the transport sector as „Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions“ (NAMAs). The project followed a multi-level approach: At country level, TRANSfer supported selected partner countries in developing and implementing NAMAs in the transport sector. The NAMAs supported by the project covered a broad variety of approaches in the partner countries Indonesia, the Philippines, South Africa, Tunisia, Peru and Colombia. At international level and closely linked to the UNFCCC process, the project helped accelerate the learning process on transport NAMAs with a comprehensive set of measures (events, training, facilitation of expert groups, documents with guidance and lessons learned such as the transport NAMA handbook and a database) which is an interactive wiki-based portal that provides access to transport NAMAs.
- TRANSfer III - Facilitating the development of ambitious transport mitigation actions
- Facility for Environmentally-Friendly Transport Technology and Measures (TRANSfer I)
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).
- Two expert groups have been established which work on MRV in transport and Climate Finance for Sustainable Transport.
- The component “Support of the German Partnership for Sustainable Mobility" provided German Know-how for the elaboration and implementation of NAMAs.
- The support of the "Partnership on Sustainable Low Carbon Transort" (SLoCaT) strengthened transport in international fora.
