The Quick Wins on Transport, Sustainable Development and Climate Change report describes a course of immediate bold and ambitious action that will kick-start the transformation of the transport sector in the desired roadmap directions, and limit the lock-in effects of a high-carbon business-as-usual (BAU) scenario.
It is in this spirit that the following list of 20 transport quick win actions have been proposed for implementation at scale in the pre-2020 period, which cohere with the global roadmap described above:
These quick wins have been selected through input from a broad set of transport experts and other stakeholders, and have been evaluated through multifaceted impact analysis. These actions have the potential to contribute toward reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, thereby moderating climate impacts, while at the same time providing key development co-benefits such as improved access, increased efficiency, and enhanced safety. While the quick wins enumerated here are mitigation-focused, it is acknowledged that continued consultations will be needed to identify quick wins on adaptation in discussions leading up to COP22.
