The transport sector contributes to 27% of energy-related CO2 emissions and is the fastest growing sector in terms of greenhouse (GHG) emissions in developing countries.
Bridging the Gap is a multi-stakeholder initiative to link climate change and land transport more closely and gain better recognition of its potential in mitigating GHG emissions. This is further strengthened by supporting SLoCaT, the Sustainable Low Carbon Transport Partnership.
