UNFCCC and GIZ present: Webinar series on Methodologies for Baselines and Monitoring in the Transport Sector

We are pleased to invite you to participate in a joint webinar series of the UNFCCC Secretariat and GIZ on Methodologies for GHG Baselines and Monitoring in the Transport Sector. The series comprises eight webinars and is based on the chapters of the UNFCCC Secretariat’s Passenger and Freight Transport Volume of the Compendium on GHG Baselines and Monitoring.

We’ll kick-start the series on 5 October 2017 at 2pm (UTC+2) German time with the first webinar on National Fuel Economy Standards. REPRESENTATIVES from the International Council on Clean Transportation (ICCT) will introduce a methodology and newly developed Excel tool (FESET) for setting GHG baselines and monitoring emission reductions from the introduction of fuel economy standards. In the last 30 minutes of the webinar, there will be time for questions and answers.

The webinar addresses primarily government agencies, consultants, think tanks and international cooperation organisations that want to calculate emissions reductions from fuel economy standards.

Webinar times – 5 October 2017

08:00 – 09:30 Washington DC (UTC-4)
09:00 – 10:30 Brasilia (UTC-3)
14:00 – 15:30 Berlin, Windhoek (UTC+2)
15:00 – 16:30 Addis Ababa, Nairobi (UTC+3)
19:00 – 20:30 Bangkok, Hanoi (UTC+7)

We’re looking forward to meeting you online!

  1. National Fuel Economy Standards (5 October 2017 – with the ICCT)
  2. Comprehensive Urban Transport Programmes (13 December 2017 – with CCAP)
  3. Pricing Policies

Further information on the Passenger and Freight Transport Volume

On 09 May 2017, during the UNFCCC´s 46th session of the Subsidiary Bodies in Bonn, the publication of the Passenger and Freight Transport Volume of the UNFCCC’s Compendium on GHG Baselines and Monitoring was officially launched. The Transport Volume is a multi-stakeholder effort to provide a resource map of methodologies and tools for establishing baselines and monitoring emissions reductions from mitigation actions.It covers more than 30 methodologies and tools, which are structured into eight different mitigation action types.

The transport volume was coordinated by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) in cooperation with the UNFCCC Secretariat and the Partnership on Sustainable Low Carbon Transport (SloCaT) and funded through the International Climate Initiative of the German Federal Ministry for Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety BMU. It was written with the assistance of the Center for Clean Air Policy with contributions from the International Council on Clean Transportation (ICCT) and INFRAS.
