TraCS

Supporting climate strategies in transport and identifying appropriate action plans

When a country’s economy is developing rapidly, people travel more and more often, and companies increasingly move goods to their clients or transport materials they need for production. For policy-makers it is a challenge to regulate and steer a fast emerging transport sector. Economic growth needs to be organised efficiently and transport demand channeled into low-carbon modes such as buses, railways or non-motorised modes. Road vehicles need to be clean, preferably electric and powered by renewable electricity. Unnecessary trips and empty freight truck trips should be avoided at all costs.

The TraCS project is implemented by GIZ and funded by the International Climate Initiative (IKI) of the German Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU).
