The report summarizes the country negotiations under the UNFCCC’s Ad Hoc Working Group on Durban Platform for Enhanced Action (ADP), Session 2-8, from February 8-13, 2015, in Geneva. The report concludes that discussions in Geneva offered glimmers of hope for elevating the stature of transport within the UNFCCC process in raising key topics such as fossil fuel subsidy reform, establishing transport more tangibly in to the scope of CTCN activities, and proposing greater scrutiny for emissions generated through the aviation and maritime sectors. Nonetheless, it is important to note that ‘transport’ appears only three times in the 86-page negotiating text (including twice in an ICAO/IMO context), and that transport has yet to find a firm foothold among discussions of pre-2020 ambition and continues to trail other sectors in discussions of post-2020 action.
