Developing mitigation actions and facilitating access to climate finance
The TRANSfer project’s objective is to increase the efforts of developing countries and emerging economies for climate-friendly transport with international support. The project acts as a mitigation action preparation facility and thus specifically supports the implementation of the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC) of the Paris Agreement.
The goal of this multi-stakeholder partnership, which is currently being supported by France, Germany and the European Commission, is that 100 cities and 20 national governments commit themselves to ambitious climate action targets for urban transport and take appropriate measures. Local action is directly linked to international political agendas (UNFCCC, Habitat, SDG).
2. Preparation of mitigation measures
The project supports five countries (including Peru, the Philippines, Thailand, Indonesia) in developing greenhouse gas mitigation measures in transport. Standardised support packages (toolkits) are developed and used for the preparation of selected mitigation measures. As a result, measures can be prepared faster and in better quality, until they are ready for implementation and eligible for (climate) financing.
3. Knowledge products, training, dialogue
Based on these experiences, TRANSfer is sharing and disseminating best practices through the development of knowledge products, organisation of events and trainings and contributes to an increasing level of ambition. Personal exchange of experience and dialogue is promoted at events, including climate talks, international transport conferences and the annual “Transport and Climate Change Week” in Berlin.
