How do we get urban transport to deliver on global climate targets?
The 2015 Paris Agreement on climate change set a clear target for greenhouse gas emissions by agreeing to “holding the increase in the global average temperature to well below 2º C above pre-industrial levels and to pursue efforts to limit the temperature increase to 1.5º C above pre-industrial levels.” That applies to all sectors, including transport. The Partnership on Sustainable, Low Carbon Development (SLoCaT) and its partners are committed to supporting the implementation of the Paris Agreement in the transport sector. Together with Michelin Challenge Bibendum, we have created the Paris Process on Mobility and Climate (PPMC) to mobilize action on transport and climate change. A key part of the PPMC’s follow-up to the Paris Agreement is the development of a global roadmap for decarbonizing the transport sector: a single, compelling vision for the sector’s transformation.
