[COP23] From Ambition to Action – Decarbonising Transport in Germany and Abroad

November 10th, 9:00-16:00

GIZ is organising the one-day event, From Ambition to Action: Decarbonising Transport, to engage with the international community over the question of how to develop zero-emission transport systems to achieve the objectives of the Paris Agreement.

The event will bring together German and international stakeholders in the context of sustainable transport to engage on pathways for decarbonising the transport sector. It will discuss feasible pathways for emerging economies and developing countries and Germany’s ambitions in decarbonising transport. Aiming at mutual learning, it will elaborate with international stakeholders how to implement more ambitious climate actions in the transport sector, including climate-resilient transport infrastructure. Last but not least, the event will debate with international donors how to unlock more investments into climate-friendly transport solutions.
