Webinar series on Methodologies for Baselines and Monitoring in the Transport Sector
31 July 2018 @ 4:00 pm
The GIZ is pleased to invite you to participate in episode 5 of the joint webinar series of the UNFCCC secretariat and GIZ on Methodologies for GHG Baselines and Monitoring in the Transport Sector. The series comprises eight webinars and is based on the chapters of the UNFCCC secretariat’s Passenger and Freight Transport Volume of the Compendium on GHG Baselines and Monitoring (2nd updated version).
Join the 45 minute CGE webinar on GHG Baselines and Monitoring in the Transport sector with a focus on alternative fuels incentives, regulation and production on 31 July 2018, at 4 pm (UTC+2) German time. William Agyemang-Bonsu (Manager, Mitigation and Transparency Support, UNFCCC) will moderate the webinar and open the session, thereafter Sandra Motshwanedi (representative of the Consultative Group of Experts on National Communications from Parties not included in Annex I to the Convention (CGE) will give an insight into CGE´s work on MRV and climate action. Subsequently, Daniel Bongardt (Senior Advisor, Transport and Climate Change, GIZ) will provide an overview of Chapter 4 of the UNFCCC´s Baseline Compendium, namely “Alternative Fuels Incentives, Regulation and Production”. As a technical expert, Jessica Wade-Murphy (CDM Methodology Expert) will then introduce applications of CDM methodologies for alternative fuels projects.
After the presentations, there will be time for questions and answers. Anything you have always wanted to know regarding Alternative Fuels Incentives, Regulation and Production or related CDM methodologies? Ask us during the Q&A!
The full series will cover the methodologies for all mitigation action types covered by the Passenger and Freight Transport Volume:
- National Fuel Economy Standards (5 October 2017 – with the ICCT)
- Comprehensive Urban Transport Programmes (13 December 2017 – with CCAP)
- Pricing Policies (22 February 2018 – with INFRAS and ICAT)

On 09 May 2017, during the UNFCCC´s 46th session of the Subsidiary Bodies in Bonn, the publication of the Passenger and Freight Transport Volume of the UNFCCC’s Compendium on GHG Baselines and Monitoring was officially launched. The Transport Volume is a multi-stakeholder effort to provide a resource map of methodologies and tools for establishing baselines and monitoring emissions reductions from mitigation actions. It covers more than 30 methodologies and tools, which are structured into eight different mitigation action types.
The transport volume was coordinated by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) in cooperation with the UNFCCC Secretariat and the Partnership on Sustainable Low Carbon Transport (SloCaT) and funded through the International Climate Initiative of the German Federal Ministry for Environment, Nature Conservation, and Nuclear Safety BMU. It was written with the assistance of the Center for Clean Air Policy with contributions from the International Council on Clean Transportation (ICCT) and INFRAS.
