Low carbon transport and climate change are difficult topics to understand. This training has been developed to increase the awareness and understanding of this complex issue. The target audience includes national and local government officials and planners responsible for transport and/or the environment.
The training, directly after the Seventh Regional EST Forum in Asia, gives insights into the international climate change process as well as helping to identify what opportunities and benefits developing countries might have from taking a low carbon approach to transport policy development, planning and development. The training includes presentations from transport and climate change experts as well as international examples. Those taking part will receive a GIZ certificate of training.
