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
Prioritize and Plan

Prioritize alternative development scenarios based on factors such as economic, environmental, and social benefits & costs, technical & institutional capacity & barriers, and obviously GHG emission impacts. Once a particular pathway is prioritized, a specific transportation development plan can be adopted, consisting of implementable policies and systems that would result in optimal impacts such as increased employment, enhanced mobility, improved health/safety, expanded market access, reduced congestion, and avoided emissions.
