Integrated energy and transport solutions to boost NDC goals

Facilitators: GIZ; LEDS GP Transport Working Group; Sustentar; SloCaT Contributors: Clara Sanguinetti (Argentina); Ariel Alvarez (Uruguay); Francisco Maciel (Brazil)

The transport sector is the fastest growing emitter of global GHG emissions. However, only 8% of 166 NDCs submitted (2018), set targets for the sector. This session will share country experiences to showcase pathways towards decarbonizing the sector. These experiences will focus on developing electric mobility strategies as one of the tools to increase NDC ambition and manage the challenges of integrated energy-transport strategies.

Session objectives:

  1. Gain a better sense of the importance of transport sector targets and actions in their NDCs
  2. Increase ambition of their nest NDC by planning transport targets in an integrated manner with sufficient sectoral stakeholder participation
  3. Understand the important mitigation potential of integrating the transport and energy sectors, and specifically of electric mobility powered by renewable energies
