EST Forum pre-event: Decarbonising Asia’s Transport Sector
Decarbonising the transport sector is an imperative to achieve the Paris Climate Agreement goal and avoid dangerous climate change. The forthcoming EST Declaration, Making Transport In Asia Sustainable, sets out to reduce carbon dioxide emissions in the transport sector by 2030 (e.g., through SDG 7.2, 9.1, 13.2), with the intention to move towards full decarbonisation of the transport sector by 2050, or shortly thereafter (goal 1a).
Pre-event of the High-Level 14th Regional EST Forum in Asia
Decarbonising Asia’s Transport Sector – How to Deliver on Proposed Goal 1a of the Aichi 2030 Declaration
Date: Tuesday, 12 October 2021
Time: 12:45-15:00, Bangkok time
This pre-event invites national policy makers from EST Member countries and selected international transport experts to jointly discuss how to deliver on goal 1a of the Aichi declaration. The event will start with a vision for fully decarbonising transport by the Council for Decarbonising Transport in Asia and introduce futures thinking as a powerful new approach to policy development. The event will:
- Discuss approaches to developing country-specific visions and roadmaps for zero carbon transport systems.
- Share real-world cases for translating transport decarbonisation roadmaps into action.
- Help to understand which EST countries would be interested in developing a decarbonisation strategy for their transport sectors.
The event programme is available here.
