Transport Working Group

A LEDS GP Working Group



  • The Working Group is working with the Peruvian Ministries of Environment (MINAM), Transport (MTC), and Energy and Mines (MINEM) to provide capacity building support to assist the country in laying the foundations for a comprehensive, robust and streamlined approach to climate change mitigation in the transport sector.

Countries and cities facing significantly increasing demand for transport services over the coming decades have a unique opportunity to develop more sustainable transport systems that will meet this demand, and at the same time, enable economic growth and reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. These sustainable transport systems focus on avoiding the need for travel, shifting to more environmentally (as well as socially and economically) sustainable mobility, and improving transport technologies, fuels, and institutions.

The Low Emission Development Strategies Global Partnership (LEDS GP) Transport Working Group provides technical assistance, tools, and trainings on transport strategies that support low emission development.

A team of international transport experts from EMBARQ, sustainable urban mobility by WRI, the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory and the United Nations Environment Programme lead activities of the Transport Working Group.
