China-Transportation Demand Management in Beijing: Mitigation of Emissions in Urban Transport
The project aims to improve transport demand management (TDM) in Beijing in order to manage the steadily increasing traffic density. The project provides capacity building for decision-makers and transport planners in Beijing to enable them to calculate baselines and assess reduction potential in line with internationally recognized MRV methodologies. It also supports the production of transport plans and the implementation of transport demand management measures.
Appropriate Transport Demand Management (TDM) strategies and measures can affect travel behaviour and therefore reduce transport energy consumption and GHG emissions. The TDM project in Beijing aims to indentify suitable non-technical measures for Beijing and evaluate GHG emissions reductions.
