Climate action and transport
187 countries signed the Paris Agreement and committed themselves to robust climate action. In 2020, they are expected to submit revised national action plans – known as Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs). These plans are an opportunity to ramp up commitments and create strategies that are ambitious enough to avert climate change. Particularly the transport sector remains a key source of concern. Vehicle emissions continue to rise in most countries and many officials still struggle to find the information that is needed to translate their plans into concrete measures.
Against this backdrop, we have compiled six action recommendations for those working on climate action in the transport sector and are happy to invite you to our webinar on how to use these to enhance ambition of the NDCs in transport.
The webinar will present the findings of our detailed survey of existing transport-related roadmaps, calls for action, and research findings, as well as encourage a discussion concerning our conclusions between all participants. In addition, the Partnership on Sustainable, Low Carbon Transport (SLoCaT) will tell us about a database they are putting together with GIZ and others in order to assess transport in the revised NDCs as well as their advocacy campaign around the NDCs.
The webinar addresses government policy makers and national experts, consultants, think tanks and international cooperation organisations. It will be recorded and made available to participants that cannot attend the livestream.
