The United Nations Environment Programme’s Risoe Centre released a report on the technologies that can help mitigate climate change in the transport sector. The report, written in collaboration with the Global Environment Facility, is part of the Risoe Centre’s Technology Needs Assessment (TNA) Project’s series of guidebooks. The TNA Project assists select countries worldwide in determining their technology priorities regarding mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions and adaptation to climate change.
Previously the project released guidebooks on mitigation technologies for the water sector and for coastal erosion and flooding. They are currently working on similar guidebooks for the building and agriculture sectors.
The report, “Technologies for Climate Change Mitigation: Transport Sector,” is an attempt to assist transport officials in developing transport services and facilities in their respective countries and localities, all while accomplishing two important missions: implementing transport that better serves people’s needs and enhances their lives, and cutting greenhouse gas emissions.
