GIZ Sourcebook Module 5e: Transport and Climate Change

From Open Energy Information

Greenhouse gas emissions from transport are a key contributor to global climate change. In addressing the impacts of climate change through sustainable transport instruments, cities are also able to benefit from a range of co-benefits. This module focuses on the sustainable transport instruments available that will help achieve both reductions in greenhouse gas emissions and co-benefits. The module will discuss how decision-makers and administrations may implement and finance these instruments.
