Diagnosis and Policy Implications of Transport for Future Earth

15 November 2013 @ 1:00 pm

Transport sector is one of the most dominant emitters of CO2, similar to industrial and domestic sectors. Massive CO2 emissions from transport definitely a big cause of extreme whether. It is at the same time one of the biggest serious victims of CO2. We need therefore to diagnose the currently changing causes for transport to influence on climate changes such as economic and income growth, creating passenger travel demand and freight, emerging LCC airlines and the supporting infrastructure, and to prescribe the transport relevant policies and to discuss their implications for low carbon society.

This event demonstrates how to design long-term measures to develop low-carbon transport systems in developing, emerging and developed countries in a back-casting manner, for decoupling economic growth with CO2 emission increase.
