The CO2 emissions from the transport sector account for about 20% of the total human-induced greenhouse emissions worldwide. The sector spans transport systems for commercial use and leisure, and vehicles used on land, air, inland waterways and seas. With a view to providing sustainable transport and mitigate climate change impacts, the CTCN brings together relevant stakeholders to provide technical assistance to countries through a combination of well-established and innovative climate technology solutions. Below you will find related publications, partners, CTCN technical assistance, technologies and other information for exploring this topic further.

Globally, the number of motorized vehicles is estimated to reach between 2 and 3 billion vehicles by 2050 with a significant number located in developing countries like Zimbabwe. Zimbabwe's motor vehicle fleet has been growing at a fast rate especially after the year 1990. The Zimbabwe Climate Change Response Strategy further identified that the nation's transport sector consumes over 1 billion liters of diesel and over 730 million liters of petrol annually. Part of the energy emissions come from the use of petroleum products in the transport sector.

The Kyrgyz Republic is a land locked and lower-middle-income country of 6,3 million population endowed with natural resources including minerals, glaciers, arable land, forestry and pastures. The country is the third most vulnerable to climate change impacts in Eastern Europe and Central Asia, due to its dependency on and sensitivity of agricultural systems.

Vanuatu is a small island country in the Pacific which depends almost entirely on imported fossil fuel for its energy and transport needs. The continuous reliance on these fossil fuels is not only unsustainable for Vanuatu but goes against Vanuatu’s national climate change mitigation ambition as reflected in its Nationally Determined Contributions, its Climate Change and Disaster Risk Reduction Policy, its National Energy Roadmap and Vanuatu’s Sustainable Development Plan.

Tonga's Nationally Determined Contribution emphasizes the need for energy efficiency in the transport and electricity sectors due to their high share of GHG emission of about 63%. Tonga has requested CTCN fast technical assistance to further revise the Tonga Energy Efficiency Master Plan (TEEMP) to reflect the socio-economic benefits, cost-benefit analysis, time frame for interventions under TEEMP and economic contribution.
