The Climate Change Commission of the Philippines hosted the event.

While in total there were 90 participants, during the Transport Specific Sessions up to 40 participants from 8 different countries discussed certain topics including the five different NAMA concepts which have been presented by ASEAN countries.

The transport stream of the workshop examined how NAMAs can: (1) help sustainable transport policy development and implementation, (2) apply the concept of transformational change to t-NAMAs, and (3) enhance the knowledge on t-NAMAs worldwide, support mechanisms, and the Road to Paris COP 21. The workshop also highlighted the significance of NAMAs as an instrument for intended nationally determined contributions (INDCs) and the call for action in formulating climate activities in a bottom-up approach.
