The SLoCaT Partnership is facilitating on behalf of the TRANSfer project an international expert group on Climate Finance for sustainable transport. The objective of the group is to help ensure that climate finance is increasingly used for sustainable transport in an effective way to realize the large GHG emission reduction potential in the sector. Further information on the group can be accessed at: http://transport-namas.org/expertgroup/expert-group-on-climate-finance-for-sustainable-transport/.
The TRANSfer project is run by GIZ and funded by the International Climate Initiative of the German Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB). Its objective is to support developing countries to develop and implement climate change mitigation strategies in the transport sector as “Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions” (NAMAs). For more information, please visite the TRANSfer Project Website.
One of the draft outputs of the international expert group is a “Policy Brief: Scaling-up Sustainable, Low-Carbon Transport – overcoming funding and financing challenges, and the role of climate finance”. This document is a draft for discussion. The document can be accessed at the TRANSfer Project website or here.
