Programs & Projects on Transport & Climate Change

Transport is a key part of IsDB’s project financing with average annual financing of approximately USD 1.5 Billion in the sector. In the Rio +20 Conference, IsDB was one of eight MDBs (ADB. AfDB, CAF, EBRD. EIB, IaDB, IsDB, and WB) that committed $175 billion for transport in developing countries over 10 years, with increasing focus on Sustainable Transport. Since then it has worked with its member countries on developing sustainable transport projects and has measured, monitored and reported on its sustainable Transport lending in a joint annual report with the other MDBs.

In COP21 in Paris IsBD issued a joint statement along with the same 7 MDBs committing to supporting countries implementing sustainable transport solutions by providing critically needed financial and technical support to assist countries in responding to rising aspirations for greater mobility and connectivity, in a sustainable way. This includes stimulating and supporting increased global climate action through transport. In their statement, IsDB and the other MDBs recognized the importance of improving the climate resilience of transport systems, and of working towards building a more systematic approach to mainstreaming climate resilience in transport policies, plans and investments through developing improved tools and methodologies, capacity building and project financing.
