Key Actions for Low-Emission Development in Transportation

Although no single approach or fixed process exists for low emission development strategies (LEDS), the following key actions are necessary steps for implementing LEDS in the transportation sector. Undertaking these actions requires flexibility to adapt to dynamic societal conditions in a way that complements existing climate and development goals in other sectors.

Planners, researchers, and decision-makers should customize this LEDS implementation framework for the specific conditions of their transport sector, choosing from relevant resources to achieve a comprehensive action plan. The key actions described in this framework are intended to guide decision makers rather than prescribe a specific methodology.

Evaluate the System
Create a Baseline
Assess Opportunities
Develop Alternative Scenarios

Establish transport development objectives, then integrate potential transport development opportunities identified through the avoid, shift, improve (ASI) framework into various alternative development scenarios that would achieve those objectives. The alternative scenarios should be compared with the BAU scenario in order to determine potential economic and emissions impact.
