The tremendous growth of motorised transport is an increasing challenge for sustainable development worldwide. The transport sector already contributes the second highest share at 27% of energy-related CO2 emissions globally, and is the fastest growing sector in terms of
greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. If no countermeasures are taken, CO2 emissions from the transport sector are projected to rise 70% by 2050. Improving sustainable mobility is also essential to achieve the UN’s Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), and their upcoming successor, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs) offer new opportunities to support developing countries in mitigating GHG emissions in their transport sectors. TRANSfer aims to facilitate the development and implementation of transport NAMAs in developing countries to reduce GHG emissions and further materialise sustainable development benefits. The final intention is to achieve co-benefits, i.e. reduce CO2 emissions in the transport sector and, at the same time, achieve more efficient and sustainable transport systems in developing countries.
What we do
- We support the design and development of Transport NAMAs;
- We foster the development of Measuring, Reporting and Verification (MRV) concepts as part of the national MRV systems;
- We support the financial design of NAMAs and fundraising for their implementation;
- We provide technical assistance for the implementation of transport NAMAs;
- We promote the international learning process on transport NAMAs in the climate change and transport communities.
