India-Low Carbon Transport

Jump to: navigation, search

"India is currently the fourth largest greenhouse gas (GHG) emitter in the world, with its transport sector being the second largest contributor of CO2 emissions. The sector also provokes road congestion, local air pollution, noise and accidents, particularly in urban areas.

Opportunities exist to make India’s transport growth more sustainable by creating an enabling environment for building transport systems which will help in reducing climate risks through mitigation within the transport sector, and by building adaptation capacity.

The project will contribute to the efforts of the Indian Government in realizing a low-carbon transport system, through its National Action Plan on Climate Change (NAPCC) that recognizes the need to reduce transport emissions through adoption of a sustainability approach."
