Key Actions for Low-Emission Development in Transportation
Although no single approach or fixed process exists for low emission development strategies (LEDS), the following key actions are necessary steps for implementing LEDS in the transportation sector. Undertaking these actions requires flexibility to adapt to dynamic societal conditions in a way that complements existing climate and development goals in other sectors.
Planners, researchers, and decision-makers should customize this LEDS implementation framework for the specific conditions of their transport sector, choosing from relevant resources to achieve a comprehensive action plan. The key actions described in this framework are intended to guide decision makers rather than prescribe a specific methodology.
Assess the current transportation situation in your country or region by researching and evaluating existing plans, policies, practices, strategies and programs related to transport and land use:
- Demand for transport services – geographic population distribution, household incomes correlated with location, private motorized vehicle ownership by type, vehicle miles traveled per capita, non-motorized transport, and travel patterns
- Supply of transport infrastructure and services – types, conditions, cost efficiency, performance, availability, and location of existing systems
- Government institutions with jurisdiction over transport systems – regulatory, policy, and financial authority
