NDCs represent a unique opportunity to increase bold mitigation and adaptation measures in transport and other sectors, as for the first time, all Parties to the UNFCCC are communicating their commitments to reduce emissions and increase resilience on sectorial scales in the context of the UNFCCC system. SLoCaT has conducted an analysis1to document the treatment of transport in the first generation of NDCs, and to identify key gaps and thus the potential to increase the role of transport in meeting reduction targets.

SLoCaT’s updated NDC report together with the preliminary results of an assessment of transport sector involvement in NDC development processes led by Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH and funded by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB) provide the following set of propositions that can help ensure that current commitments materialize and are further intensified.
