Upcoming Webinar: Transport in NDCs – lessons learnt and how to raise ambition
The Report Transport in Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) that was published ahead of the 23rd Conference of the Parties (COP23) in Bonn, Germany summarises case study findings from rapidly-motorising countries, including Bangladesh, Colombia, Georgia, Kenya, Nigeria, Peru and Viet Nam. It highlights the shared challenges they face in developing and delivering greenhouse gas mitigation actions within expanding transport sectors. These include the impact that a lack of transport data is having on sectoral climate action and the need for increased buy-in from key transport stakeholders to achieve countries’ climate change commitments. The report also highlights the need to build climate change expertise within transport authorities, and for greater alignment between NDCs and national transport sector strategies.

GIZ and Ricardo provide policy-makers and development practitioners key insight into the development and implementation of Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) in the transport sector for post-2020 climate actions in rapidly-motorising countries.
We are pleased to invite you to participate in the webinar Transport in NDCs – lessons learnt and how to raise ambition. The webinar presents key results recent studies of the from the BMUB-IKI funded Advancing Transport Climate Strategies (TraCS) project.
It is scheduled for Monday, 29 January 2018, 14:00 – 15:30 Berlin/Bonn UTC+1
Daniel Bongardt (GIZ) will present how transport is represented in NDCs and what conclusion can be drawn for NDC revision. Edina Loehr, (Ricardo Energy & Environment) will present the lessons learnt from case studies including methodology, country examples, recommendations for climate and transport ministries and donors. Before a final Q&A, Edina Loehr will address the topic of raising ambition in NDCs. The webinar primarily addresses government agencies, consultants, think-tanks and international cooperation organisations, as well as scholars and graduate students.
- Daniel Bongardt is currently heading GIZ’s Advancing Transport Climate Strategies project. From 2011 to 2015, he lived in Beijing coordinating GIZ’s transport portfolio in China. Interested in a broad range of topics (e.g. urban mobility, freight and logistics, electro mobility) his passion is to quantify transport emissions. Before joining GIZ in 2009, he has been researching sustainable mobility at the German think tank Wuppertal Institute for Climate, Environment and Energy.
- Edina Loehr is a sustainable transport consultant at Ricardo Energy & Environment. The focus of her work is sustainable transport policy advice to governments in Europe and the rest of the world. Recent experience involves impact assessments and evaluations of legislation in the transport sector involving extensive stakeholder engagement activities and in-depth data analysis.
We’re looking forward to meeting you online!
