The study on “Financing Sustainable Urban Transport – International Review of National Urban transport Policies and Programmes” authored by Rodrigo Diaz (Embarq) and Daniel Bongardt (GIZ) presents an analysis of a variety of financing and planning practices world-wide in order to help decision-makers identify suitable elements for their local co

Freight transport has severe negative impacts on the local air quality in many Asian cities, and contributes significantly to greenhouse gas emissions.

This document, developed by GIZ together with the Bridging the Gap Initiative, represents a practical guide for developing country's governments on how to access climate funds for sustainable land transport interventions.

The 2010/2011 International Fuel Prices report provides an overview of the retail prices of gasoline and diesel in over 170 countries.

TRANSfer Project published a first draft of its Handbook "Navigating Transport NAMAs". The purpose of the handbook is to provide practitioners in the transport sector around the world with practical step-by-step guidance on how to design and implement climate change mitigation actions in this complex sector.

The growing emphasis on solar energy utilisation to achieve energy security as well as to combat the menace of climate change and global warming has resulted in the formulation of one of the world’s most ambitious solar missions in India.

Transport has a powerful impact on health and that influence on health is growing globally along with increased mobility. The transport sector also offers major potential for reducing greenhouse gas emissions, making transport policies an important area of attention in the climate change field.

The impacts of climate change increasingly threaten the achievement of poverty reduction and other development objectives, including the 2015 Millennium Development Goals (MDG).

More and more cities around the world are developing dedicated Climate Change Action Plans to reduce Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions and improve the local air quality for their inhabitants. The transport sector usually plays a crucial role in any such strategy.

While climate change will affect all regions of the world, people in developing countries are the most vulnerable. That is why adaptation is a priority for German development cooperation, with many programmes already addressing the challenge in partner countries.
