Developing Policies and Strategies for Low Carbon Transport in India
24 August 2012, New Delhi, India
India´s National Action Plan on Climate Change (NAPCC) recognizes that GHG emissions from transport can be reduced by adopting a sustainable approach e.g. increased use of public transport, improved energy efficiency of transport vehicles, promoting a shift towards rail, etc
As part of the UNEP project on ‘Promoting Low Carbon Transport in India´, a detailed study of different options that can help in achieving national socio economic objectives, and also contribute to India´s efforts in achieving global climate change targets is being carried out using an Integrated Modeling framework.
Preliminary results from this study were presented during a two-day workshop to obtain stakeholders´ inputs, which will be used to improve the analysis and prepare an action plan for achieving sustainable low carbon transport in India. Main topics covered during the first day included low-carbon scenarios for: transport systems, sustainable vehicles, and sustainable mobility.
