Decarbonising Asia’s Transport Sector – How to Deliver on Proposed Goal 1a of the Aichi 2030 Declaration
Decarbonising the transport sector is an imperative to achieve the Paris Climate Agreement goal and avoid dangerous climate change. The forthcoming EST Declaration, Making Transport In Asia Sustainable, sets out to reduce carbon dioxide emissions in the transport sector by 2030 (e.g. through SDG 7.2, 9.1, 13.2), with the intention to move towards full decarbonisation of the transport sector by 2050, or shortly thereafter (goal 1a).
Several countries in Asia have already committed to an economy-wide decarbonisation target, such as China, Japan, Laos, Nepal, Singapore and South Korea; and Bhutan is climate negative at present.
An economy-wide carbon neutrality target means that the transport sector needs to become carbon neutral, too. Among EST countries, Bangladesh, Fiji and Japan have set quantified targets for transport decarbonisation in their NDCs to move toward this goal. Carbon neutrality will require a transformation of transport and mobility systems, making use of regulation and planning, as well as application of advanced technologies through multi

This pre-event invites national policy makers from EST Member countries and selected international transport experts to jointly discuss how to deliver on proposed goal 1a of the Aichi declaration. The event will start with a vision for fully decarbonising transport by the Council for Decarbonising Transport in Asia and introduce futures thinking as a powerful new approach to policy development. The event will:
- Discuss approaches to developing country-specific visions and roadmaps for zero carbon transport systems.
- Share real-world cases for translating transport decarbonisation roadmaps into action.
- Help to understand which EST countries would be interested in developing a decarbonisation strategy for their transport sectors.
This virtual discussion will follow Chatham House rules. It is organised in cooperation with the Asian Development Bank (ADB), Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) and the SLOCAT Partnership on Sustainable, Low Carbon Transport as part of the NDC Transport Initiative for Asia (NDC-TIA), funded by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety's International Climate Initiative (IKI).
