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.
Nations have concluded the Climate Change Talks held in Geneva by successfully preparing the negotiating text for the 2015 agreement. The agreement is set to be reached in Paris at the end of 2015, coming into effect in 2020.
