Transport Day 2014: Transport Tackles Climate Change

8.12.2014

Transport Day 2014 at COP 20 in Lima had NDF contributing to sessions on mitigation and adaptation

Transport Day took place on 7 December 2014, in Lima, Peru, alongside the twentieth Conference of the Parties (COP 20) to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). Transport Day focuses on rethinking transport and climate change and it brought together more than 300 transport specialists, government representatives, researchers, business leaders, and international organisations. The objectives of Transport Day 2014 are to demonstrate the contribution that land transport can make to climate change mitigation and adaptation, specifically in the context of the UNFCCC negotiations and sustainable development. Transport Day is also aiming to ensure that evolving modalities for financing, including NAMAs and the Green Climate Fund, capacity building, and technology transfer under the UNFCCC are appropriate for the transport sector.
 
NDF Country Program Manager, Martina Jägerhorn was a panellist in the special session on national appropriate mitigation action (NAMA) programs for transport and tools for measuring, verification and reporting (MRV) on emissions reductions. In the special session on transport adaptation NDF Country Program Manager, Aage Jørgensen presented NDF support to climate change adaptation in the transport sector and key lessons learned.
 
Transport Day also serves to promote tools and technologies that individual countries can use to help achieve low carbon transport and the reduction of transport infrastructure and service vulnerability to extreme weather events. Transport Day 2014 is arranged by Bridging the Gap (BtG) Initiative and the Partnership on Sustainable, Low Carbon Transport (SLoCaT) in collaboration with the Government of Peru and the UNFCCC.
