Climate Change Scenario Studies: Developing Countries

DFID Fact sheet on Transport in a Low Carbon Economy

Implementing climate change mitigation measures in the transport sector will contribute to the economic and social progress of developing nations by creating new jobs, healthier environments and enhanced mobility, and will reduce the vulnerability of poorer people to anthropogenic climate change impacts.


Brazil Low-carbon Country Case Study. Implementing a low-carbon scenario would mean reducing increased emissions of the transport sector from almost 65percent to less than 17%(from 149 Mt CO2 in 2008 to 174Mt CO2 instead of 245 Mt CO2 per year in 2030). Total avoided emissions would amount to nearly 524Mt CO2 over the 2010-2030 period, or about 35 Mt CO2 per year on average

Urban Transport and CO2 Emissions: Some Evidence from Chinese Cities.  It is first a compendium of data— most of it collected as part of the “China-GEF-World Bank Urban Transport Partnership Program”— and also provides a preliminary analysis of urban transport characteristics, energy use and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions for a diverse set of cities in China.


Low-Carbon Development for Mexico.   The study analyses BAU scenario for transport related GHG emissions up to 2030 and the emission reduction potential of technological and behavioural changes for both passenger and freight transport.
