The PPMC is an open and inclusive platform that actively invites all organizations and initiatives that support effective action on transport and climate change to join in the process. The PPMC was created in early 2015 to strengthen the voice of the sustainable transport community in the UNFCCC process, especially with a view to the Conference of Parties (COP21) in December 2015 in Paris and the Paris Agreement. The PPMC moved from ambition advocacy to implementation advocacy.
During COP21 the PPMC was able to showcase the vitality and strength of the sustainable transport community in terms of action on Transport and Climate Change. By bringing together different actors and stakeholders in the sustainable transport community the PPMC made it possible for the transport sector to have its voice heard and speak with one voice on the important contribution that sustainable mobility can make to the mitigation of, and adaptation to climate change.
Following the success of the PPMC during COP21, the stakeholders in the PPMC agreed on March 10th during a stakeholder meeting to extend the PPMC for the following years.
The PPMC convenes the global sustainable transport community to contribute optimally to the implementation of:
The PPMC will engage global processes on sustainable development and climate change to ensure that implementation arrangements are conducive for action by the transport sector.
“From ambition advocacy to implementation advocacy” – The PPMC is moving towards strengthening the implementation of sustainable transport and measures for transport and climate change.
The PPMC is a non-state actors coalition bringing together 2 complementary ecosystems to transform and develop transport in line with the Paris Agreement: The Partnership on Sustainable, Low Carbon Transport (SLoCaT) and Movin’ on (former Michelin Challenge Bibendum (MCB)). These two organizations have taken the initiative for the PPMC. Together they bring together over 150 organizations working on sustainable mobility representing multi- and bilateral development organizations, financing institutions, civil society and foundations, academe and the business sector. The PPMC is an open and inclusive platform that actively invites all organizations and initiatives that support effective action on transport and climate change to join in the process.
The activities of the PPMC are guided by two central principles:
The PPMC currently structures its work through the following five components:
The PPMC will continue outreach on sustainable, low carbon and resilient transport through a number of common messages on mobility, climate and sustainable development. Partners and other interested groups will develop a series of knowledge products and disseminate these to stakeholders on climate change and sustainable development. Further, the PPMC will take the lead in organizing a series of official and unofficial side events on sustainable mobility and climate change.
The PPMC supports other initiatives on transport and climate change. This includes specifically the Transport Initiatives under the Marrakech Partnership for Global Climate Action (GCA) and the MPGCA Thematic Events on Transport at COP. PPMC played an important role in being the voice of transport at the LPAA Thematic Day at COP21, convening transport initiatives at COP22 and COP23 and will continue to do so in the following years.
