Railways can deliver climate-friendly freight transport. This study assesses the case of Indonesia’s main island of Java. It describes barriers for intermodal rail transport, develops a policy action programme and assesses its potential impacts. The study has been a key element in the cooperation between the Indonesian government and the GIZ TRANSfer III project. Several of its recommendations have already been implemented or have been included in official plans.
