Shift public resources to low carbon transport!

Embarking on a low carbon pathway in the transport sector in line with a 2 degree corridor would save at least USD 70 trillion until 2050, according to the International Energy Agency. Accessing finance for low carbon transport, however, is still a huge challenge. We support the shift of public resources towards sustainable transport solutions, facilitate access to climate finance and actively involve the private sector.
