Mobilize Net-Zero – Facilitating the global transport transformation

Transport accounts for a quarter of energy-related CO2 emissions, growing faster than in other sectors. A global transformation of transport is pivotal for limiting global warming to 1.5 °C. The project aims for national governments to increase their commitments towards decarbonizing transport with the support of international partnerships. To this end, the establishment of a partnership of pioneering countries is being explored. Through this partnership as well as exchange platforms such as the Transport and Climate Change Week, international learning is being promoted and awareness is raised. An online tool based on artificial intelligence (Transport Transformation Tracker) informs stakeholders about the status of reforms. In East Africa, a flagship project on paratransit will be prepared and knowledge on the decarbonisation of transport will be disseminated. In Latin America, sustainable mobility encouraging electrification and shift to public transport is promoted in eight countries.

State of implementation/results

  • The Transport and Climate Change Week 2023 took place in Berlin from September 11-15, with participants from over 30 partner countries worldwide. The 6th training week was under the motto “Building upon and beyond – Reflecting on the past, shaping the future” and has enabled peer learning, sharing of country experiences and the strengthening and building of global and regional networks (www.transportweek.org).
  • The project team is assessing the status quo of the numerous international partnerships currently engaged in decarbonising the transport sector and its subsectors. As part of the scoping process, the level of ambition, the type of membership, the targeted sub-sectors and the governance structure are being analysed.
  • The “NDC Transport Tracker” (changing-transport.org/…), which originally was developed by the project Advancing Transport Climate Strategies (TraCS), was updated, and its relaunch presented to the public on 29 August 2023. In the mid-term, a text mining tool, using natural language processing, will be used to support analysts in reviewing relevant policy documents for the Tracker in the future.
