Official BtG side event at UNFCCC Climate Talks 2012: Designing a Successful Transport NAMA
16 May 2012 @ 8:00 pm
Managing growth in motorised land transport with desirable economic development is a key challenge for developing countries. Those that are making decisions that help put them onto a low carbon pathway will reap considerable benefits in the future. This is not easy but NAMAs are one possible way of linking the global commitment to reducing or at least mitigating CO2 emission growth with developing transport systems. International experts will share experience and make recommendations for the ‘ingredients’ needed for building a successful t-NAMA and also give examples of present experience in preparing transport NAMAs and their implementation as well as the latest tools in the pipeline on the difficult issue of MRV for transport.
The event will feature:
- An overview of countries that are including transport in NAMAs to enhance mobility and contribute to wider sustainable development objectives.
- Information on NAMAs as a means to obtain recognition and support for low-carbon transport interventions.
- Lessons learnt on MRV for transport NAMAs
- An interactive session to discuss action underway
Open and free to all participants of the UNFCCC climate talks
