This report provides a summary of the quality of petrol and diesel used for road transport in the European Union under the requirements of the Fuel Quality Directive (FQD), based on the information reported by Member States for 2014.

Freight transportation is a vital element for attaining sustainable development. Inefficient movement of goods does not only impend economic growth, but also results in various externalities such as air pollutants, greenhouse gas (GHG) and short-lived climate pollutants (SLCPs).

Transport sector has always been a significant contributor in emission estimates of cities. The source apportionment studies conducted in the six major cities of the country have shown that transport has significant contributions in PM2.5 and NOx concentrations.

Global emissions scenarios studies, such as those informing the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) 5th Assessment Report (AR5), highlight the importance of the transport sector for climate change mitigation—along with the difficulties of achieving deep reductions therein (1) [supplementary materials (SM)]. Transport is responsible for about 23% of total energy-related CO2 emissions worldwide (2). The sector is growing more rapidly than most others, with emissions projected to double by 2050.

The Global status report on road safety 2015, reflecting information from 180 countries, indicates that worldwide the total number of road traffic deaths has plateaued at 1.25 million per year, with the highest road traffic fatality rates in low-income countries.

In the run-up to the global climate conference in Paris later this year, the Modi government will launch an extensive media and public campaign for three months on efforts being made to reduce gree

The Delhi government is embarking on a massive exercise of “redesigning“ all roads that are more than 60ft wide.

This letter assesses low carbon scenarios for India at the subnational level in the passenger road transport sector. We estimate the future passenger mobility demand and assess the impact of carbon mitigation policies using the Asia–Pacific Integrated Assessment/Enduse models. This letter focuses on the transitions of energy and emissions of passenger transport in India in alternate scenarios i.e. the business-as-usual scenario and a low carbon scenario that aligns to the 2 °C temperature stabilization target agreed under the global climate change negotiations.

Question raised in Lok Sabha on Clean Fuel Norms, 11/08/2015. Government of India approved the National Mission on Electric Mobility in 2011 and subsequently National Electric Mobility Mission Plan 2020 was unveiledby the then Hon’ble Prime Minister.

In order to give importance to Road Safety and to reduce the incidence of Road Accidents in the UT of the Puducherry, the Transport Department, Puducherry based on the guidelines of Ministry of Road Transport and Highways, New Delhi has prepared, "The Draft Road Safety Policy and Action Plan for the UT of Puducherry".
