Transportation NAMAs: a proposed framework

Transportation NAMAs: a proposed framework This recent paper discusses the importance of addressing greenhouse gas emissions from the transportation sector in developing countries and suggests that supported NAMAs provide an important opportunity to truly transform the transportation sector in many countries.
Any realistic strategy to reduce global GHG emissions must address transportation in the developing world. Most of the growth in transportation GHGs by 2050 will be in the developing world, and by 2030, more than half of all vehicles will be in non-OECD countries. Failure to address this sector will shift mitigation responsibilities and costs to other sectors, such as electricity generation, or jeopardize achieving targets for atmospheric CO2 concentrations.
