A vital step for successful implementation of a strategy, policy, programme or project is the assessment of its impact. When developing sustainable transport measures certain aspects have to be measured, reported and verified – or MRVed. Yet how does this work for bus fleet modernisation projects?
This comprehensive guide illustrates existing methodologies for greenhouse gas quantification of different types of transport mitigation actions. It is a volume of the UNFCCC’s Compendium on GHG Baselines and Monitoring series. The presented methodologies cover more than 30 methodologies and tools different in terms of scale, type of intervention and affected modes. It covers eight different mitigation action types, including intra-urban mass rapid transit investments or vehicle efficiency improvement programmes.
The first and fourth chapter of the Compendium are of particular relevance for this toolkit as they focus on mass transit investments and alternative fuels incentives, regulations and production.
