MobiliseYourCity, a partnership among cities all over the globe for integrated urban development planning in emerging and develping countries, has recently issued a publication on monitoring and reporting GHG emissions in urban transport.
Rapidly growing transport activities in urban areas are a big challenge for mitigating climate change. This paper provides a detailed approach for setting-up an emissions monitoring system for urban passenger transport in Chinese cities.
This module of the GTZ Sourcebook for Decision-Makers in Developing Cities is intended to raise awareness, describe the expected impacts of climate change on urban passenger transport and provide an orientation on how to integrate climate proofing into urban transport planning and policy implementation. The paper concludes with a discussion on synergies between adaptation and mitigation.
