Today the transport sector is responsible for approximately one quarter of all energy related greenhouse gases (GHG) emissions. In addition, more cities, especially in developing and transitional countries, are experiencing serious air quality problems. Especially worrisome is the rapidly increasing fleet of private vehicles, which will take place in developing countries. In addition, the global vehicle fleet is expected to triple by 2050 and most of the growth will occur in developing and transition countries that have immature vehicle emission reduction strategies
Whilst governments are increasingly active with regards to air pollution and reducing the energy used by the transport sector, there is often a large gap between the technology available and best practice know-how, the networks necessary to build consensus and the actual implementation of transformative change. The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) employs a 3-fold strategy to address externalities from road transport; namely Avoid-Shift-Improve. By designing our work around these 3 pillars, UNEP is...
This product is designed to provide policy makers and interested individuals and groups with overviews of policy tools and approaches to improving fleet-wide auto fuel efficiency and promote lower CO2 and non-CO2 emissions from cars, along with case studies that depict these approaches from developed and developing countries.
