Thematic Strategies: Communities of Practice

Sustainable Transport

The transport of humans and goods holds major economic and social importance in maintaining expected standards of consumption and quality of life. The transport sector is one of the main consumers of fossil fuel, and hence is a major contributor to the total greenhouse gas (GHG) emission, accounting for 18% of total GHG emission as of 2015. The International Energy Agency (IEA) projects 50% higher transport emissions by 2060, with strong growth especially in trucks and buses. This not only increases the fossil fuel dependency, but also leads to severe impacts on social problems such as traffic congestion, poor health, noise, resource use and waste, and eventually, causes climate change. The Majority of Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) identify transport as a mitigation priority. Multiple countries made sustainable and electric mobility pledge. The sustainability and electrification of transport is one of the megatrends in mobility and is an important pillar to achieve its decarbonization.

In order to remain relevant and adaptable in a challenging and uncertain future global transport environment, the Transportation CoP will target its interventions and investments in i) mainstreaming sustainable transport strategies into national, sub-national, regional, local, and sectoral policies and development plans; ii) linking sustainable transport solutions to existing transport infrastructure & system investments; and iii) facilitating the participation of the private sector in the sustainable transport industry. The CoP-Transportation has actively supported partnerships and country transport implementation in more than 20 member countries. To enhance members green growth transformation in the transport sector, the CoP-T will give priority to i) Initiating and leading innovative programs and project ideas that contribute to the organization’s strategic objectives in transport and sustainable mobility, and ii) strengthening and supporting relevant stakeholder’s capability with respect to the understanding of transport and sustainable mobility, relevant skill sets, and general project management.
