Transport Decarbonization Toolbox – Supporting Countries, Cities and Companies Towards Carbon Neutrality

Since COP23 in Bonn and Movin’On Summit 2018 in Montreal, DDP-Transport is working in cooperation with four other key international initiatives to inform policymakers on specific aspects related to the sustainable transformation of the transport sector.


DDP-Tool1

Decarbonising Transport initiative led by ITF-OECD, Science Based Targets led by WWF, WRI, CDP and UNGC, Sustainable Urban Mobility led by WBCSD, Global Macro Roadmap for Transport Decarbonization led by PPMC and the Deep Decarbonization Pathways led by IDDRI provide tools in the Transport Decarbonization Toolbox to support:

  • implementation and provide relevant inputs to develop short-term climate action plans for transport, increase the transport climate ambition for countries, cities and companies and inform the revision of Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs).
  • multi-stakeholder dialogues between Countries, Cities, Companies and Citizens to enhance the future ambition.

The existing tools provide relevant inputs to develop detailed short-term climate action plans for transport, increase the transport climate ambition for countries, cities and companies and inform the revision of Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs). Different tools analyze the drivers of sustainable mobility to understand the policy levers required, test and compare policy packages to explore different long-term low emission pathways, and assess emission reduction targets and other key transport-related indicators.

Implementation Results

  • DDP tool for passenger transport supported Mexican research teams in their assessment of the conditions to alleviate the time and monetary burden of constrained mobility for households while increasing mobility for the categories of population with lowest mobility rates and reducing the emissions per capita by 50% between 2010 and 2050.
  • Engagement with SiMPlify has generated Public-Private Partnerships to advance electric mobility in Hamburg; a new bike lane was rolled out in Campinas (Brazil); a school-bus scheme, 15 park and ride facilities, flexible working hours and traffic management flow resulted in lower emissions and congestion in Bangkok. After a trial in Indore, right turn filtering is now promoted in India.

 

The existing tools are tailored to different policy and decision makers working in national or local governments, in companies or in non-profit organizations and are able to integrate context-specific priorities. Countries, regions, cities and companies have different action levers. Coordination among them is key to enhancing future ambition and the different tools support this inclusive dialogue and engagement at different scales.
