NDC Transport Initiative for Asia (NDC-TIA)

The NDC Transport Initiative for Asia is a regional initiative aiming at a holistic approach to decarbonize the transport sector in China, India, Vietnam, and further Asian countries. This includes, for example, the development of a coherent strategy for efficient policy approaches which is coordinated between various sector ministries, civil society and the private sector.

The transport sector accounts for 23% of the global energy-related CO₂ emissions (IEA 2017). The Chinese transport sector alone caused 781 Mt CO2e emissions in 2014. Together with India (231 Mt CO2e) and Vietnam (32 Mt CO2e), the three countries emitted about 1 Gt CO2e in 2014 (IEA 2017). Rapid economic growth combined with an ongoing urbanisation trend and increasing motorisation lead to a further increase in traffic amount in the three partner countries. Therefore, the transition to a decarbonisation path for the transport sector in Asia is essential to achieve the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement for 2050.

In each of the partner countries, the consortium supports the design and information of stakeholder processes and the development of selected climate protection measures. In this way, the partners are supported in making their sectoral contributions to the achievement of the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) of the Paris Agreement and in raising their ambitions for long-term strategies and the 2025 NDCs.

As a regional initiative, the programme disseminates appropriate knowledge in Asia via existing platforms. By linking with regional stakeholders and other Asian countries, it contributes to promoting a comprehensive approach to decarbonising transport. At the global level, the programme will contribute its experience to the UNFCCC process.

The NDC Transport Initiative for Asia is part of the International Climate Initiative (IKI). The German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action (BMWK) supports this initiative on the basis of a decision adopted by the German Bundestag.
