UN Climate Change
The demand for transportation services is growing and substantial sustainable development co-benefits can accrue from transport policies that have been well designed. A successful sustainable transport agenda requires inclusive partnerships between governments, the private sector and civil society facilitated by multilateral initiatives and international organizations. In developing countries, it also requires adequate levels of support.
That is why the UNFCCC is organizing on Monday, 23 May 2016, under the guidance of the COP Presidencies, a Technical Expert Meeting (TEM) on transport to discuss low-carbon transportation policies, technologies and opportunities. The participants will focus on opportunities and policy options in two areas that are particularly relevant to mitigation: the planning and operation of public transport at different scales and policy and technological solutions for energy efficiency of vehicles.
The UNFCCC is coordinating the Climate Action Fair during the May 2016 session, which encompasses the activities related to pre-2020 action by Parties and non-
Party stakeholders. The main events of the Climate Action Fair are the four technical expert meetings (TEMs). The purpose of the TEMs is to identify practices and actions that could enhance mitigation ambition and adaption actions in the pre-2020 period.
