Sino-German Cooperation on Low Carbon Transport (CLCT)
Enhancing dialogue and implementation of long-term mitigation strategies to promote low carbon transport in China
To achieve the dual carbon goals of peaking carbon dioxide emissions before 2030 and achieving carbon neutrality by 2060, China started implementing various measures to drastically reduce its emissions. In the transport sector, these include the promotion of electro-mobility and smart transport systems, the expansion of public transport, the promotion of shared mobility, walking and cycling, and the promotion of intermodal transport aiming at shifting freight transport volumes from the road to more climate-friendly means, including rail and inland waterways.
The CLCT project supports the Chinese Ministry of Transport (MoT) and other partners on national and city level in elaborating effective and efficient implementation strategies and policies to further develop a climate-friendly transport sector in China, and supports the Sino-German policy dialogue on long-term climate change mitigation strategies in the transport sector. It facilitates the exchange on the potentials of digitalisation, innovative technologies and integrated mobility concepts for fostering and promoting sustainable and low-carbon future transport and mobility.
To achieve this objective, the project facilitates policy dialogue and advice, sector-specific knowledge sharing and research, implements pilot projects at city level and expands specialist expertise. To this end, Chinese partners are supported, particularly in the priority areas of passenger and freight transport.
The project implementation focuses on:
the facilitation of Sino-German transport climate-policy and multi-stakeholder dialogues,
the promotion of Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMP),
the sustainable development of Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS),
the promotion of electro-mobility in the fields of urban buses and urban delivery vehicles,
the promotion of climate-oriented bus network optimisation,
the establishment of an Active Mobility Alliance in China,
the promotion of intermodal transport standardisation and hub evaluation, and
the promotion of sustainable urban freight
The Sino-German Cooperation on Low Carbon Transport project (CLCT) is funded by the International Climate Initiative (IKI) of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action (BMWK). The CLCT project is implemented by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH in close collaboration with the Ministry of Transport (MoT) of the People’s Republic of China.
Advisor – Sustainable Mobility Based in Rabat, Morocco
Currently working as advisor on sustainable mobility in Morocco, I am a mobility enthusiast focused on the promotion of low carbon development and using innovative transport and mobility concepts to make cities greener, more inclusive, and more sustainable. I have gained experience in sustainable mobility particularly through project management and research support in topics of urban mobility planning, active mobility, and freight and logistics while working in the Sino-German Cooperation on Low Carbon Transport (CLCT) in Beijing. My academic background is in international relations and Chinese studies with a focus on global development cooperation.
After first joining the GIZ Transport Team in August 2021, I am now a junior advisor for transport and climate change at the TraCS project and support the Sino-German Cooperation on Low Carbon Transport with regards to the implementation of active mobility activities and project communication.
I believe in a future of mobility that puts people’s needs first, in a manner that is sustainable for the climate and societies. Thus, I am excited to work for GIZ Transport and contribute to the implementation of climate mitigation action in the transport sector.
With a background in Political Sciences and Latin American Studies, my interest in sustainability governance was strengthened in study projects on multimodal urban mobility and energy transitions. Having lived in Germany, Mexico, Argentina and the Netherlands, I experienced the social impact of different transport regimes. I am convinced of fostering livable cities as spaces of exchange and social participation, in which climate change is mitigated and contamination is reduced.
Therefore, I am thrilled to be a part of the GIZ Transport Team and to work on making mobility more sustainable in every dimension.
I am currently serving as the sustainable mobility team leader at GIZ in Morocco, where we support our partners in their ambitions to make transport and mobility more sustainable, inclusive, and climate-friendly. Before joining GIZ Morocco in January 2023, I was serving at GIZ in China, heading the Sino-German Cooperation on Low Carbon Transport (CLCT) project and coordinating the China activities of the NDC Transport Initiative for Asia (NDC-TIA) project. As a trained urban planner and designer, I am passionate about how cities shape society and the other way around. Before joining GIZ in 2017, I worked for American Aecom and German ISA and AS+P, where I was involved in projects in the fields of strategic and master planning, new town and urban redevelopment, and urban renewal in China, Germany, and the Middle East. I hold a Master of Science degree in urban and regional planning from the Brandenburg University of Technology (BTU).
I work on the topic of transport-related emissions in the project “Sino-German Cooperation on Low-Carbon Transport” (CLCT) and support in the coordination of the consortium partners of the regional project NDC Transport Initiative in Asia. Before my time at GIZ, I worked as an interpreter at a German construction firm on the topic of high-speed railway systems. During the implementation of various other projects I already supported GIZ in China Mobility Team.
I’m currently supporting Sino-German Cooperation on Low Carbon Transport (CLCT) project and NDC Transport Initiative for Asia project (NDC-TIA) project in terms of communication and public relations. After more than two years of administrative works in GIZ China Office, I have joined the transport team in December 2020. Transportation is a crucial sector to global climate change. I am very happy to contribute to this sector and to bring more people’s attention to this topic.
I am working as a Senior Advisor of GIZ in the Sino-German Cooperation on Low Carbon Transport (CLCT) and NDC-TIA Projects. My responsibilities are the implementation of project activities, especially in the fields of freight transport and logistics.
