UNFCCC and GIZ present: Webinar series on Methodologies for Baselines and Monitoring in the Transport Sector

The series comprises eight webinars and is based on the chapters of the UNFCCC Secretariat’s Passenger and Freight Transport Volume of the Compendium on GHG Baselines and Monitoring. The webinars address primarily government agencies, consultants, think tanks and international cooperation organisations that want to calculate emissions reductions from transport interventions.

The full series will cover the methodologies for all mitigation action types covered by the Passenger and Freight Transport Volume:

  1. National Fuel Economy Standards (5 October 2017 – with the ICCT)
  2. Comprehensive Urban Transport Programmes (13 December 2017 – with CCAP)
  3. Pricing Policies (22 February 2018 – with INFRAS and ICAT)
  4. Vehicle Efficiency Improvement Programmes (16 April 2018 – with KPMG on behalf of UNDP)
  5. Alternative Fuels Incentives, Regulation and Production (31 July 2018 – with the Consultative Group of Experts on National Communications from Parties not included in Annex I to the Convention)
  6. Shift Mode of Freight Transport from Road to Rail or Water (14 November 2018 – with the Consultative Group of Experts on National Communications from Parties not included in Annex I to the Convention and UNFCCC CDM technical experts)
  7. Inter-Urban Rail Infrastructure (09 September 2019 – with with UNFCCC CDM technical experts and Jürg Grütter)
  8.  Mass Transit Investments

Further information on the Passenger and Freight Transport Volume

On 09 May 2017, during the UNFCCC´s 46th session of the Subsidiary Bodies in Bonn, the publication of the Passenger and Freight Transport Volume of the UNFCCC’s Compendium on GHG Baselines and Monitoring was officially launched. The Transport Volume is a multi-stakeholder effort to provide a resource map of methodologies and tools for establishing baselines and monitoring emissions reductions from mitigation actions. It covers more than 30 methodologies and tools, which are structured into eight different mitigation action types.

The transport volume was coordinated by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) in cooperation with the UNFCCC Secretariat and the Partnership on Sustainable Low Carbon Transport (SloCaT) and funded through the International Climate Initiative of the German Federal Ministry for Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety BMU. It was written with the assistance of the Center for Clean Air Policy with contributions from the International Council on Clean Transportation (ICCT) and INFRAS.
