Introduction to Transport NAMAs

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.
