ITS for Climate Initiative aims to take a stand in favor of using ITS solutions to work towards a low-carbon, resilient world and to limit global warming below the 2-degree target and contribute to adaptation to climate change in large cities and isolated territories.
The initiative commits to spread awareness about ITS, and deliver accurate information; train and develop experts; promote “cross-fertilize” to build on past successes, develop incentive programs for ITS project deployment.
The ITS for Climate initiative is carried out by ATEC, ITS France, and TOPOS Aquitaine, who represent a few hundred members; more partners and supporters are expected to join in coming years.
Outreach and Capacity building:
The initiative is presently building the ITS for Climate Projects & Best Practices Database to register ITS solutions proposed or implemented to address climatic issues and is launching an international research program aimed at developing a methodology and a toolbox to precisely measure the impact of current and foreseen ITS projects and develop coordinated deployment plan of ITS Solutions specially in large cities and insulated territories.
