Sustainable transport: We aim to mitigate emissions.
In the Paris Agreement all countries committed to climate targets – including emission reductions from transport. GIZ assists partners in translating these targets into sector plans and specific transport mitigation actions. Covering all modes in passenger and freight transport, we support partner countries through consulting and training.
Our broad range of measures include:
Investments in efficient transport systems, e.g. public transport, rail or intermodal hubs;
Programmes supporting the switch of vehicle technologies, e.g. new truck or bus fleets or electric vehicles;
Regulations and standards, e.g. on fuel economy, or low-rolling resistant tires;
Taxes and price incentives (e.g. CO2-based vehicle taxes).
Furthermore, we connect our partners to international climate initiatives like the MobiliseYourCity Partnership to combine knowledge and efforts, and scale-up impacts beyond individual climate actions.
