How can Sustainable Urban Transport contribute to the reduction of GHG emissions
Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from the transport sector also play an important role in the climate change issue. Carbon dioxide (CO2), a GHG, emissions from the transport sector has risen by the fastest rate in the past three decades. From 1990 to 2004, CO2 emissions from the transport sector alone rose by 36.5%. In developing countries esp. China, India, and other Asian countries the change in lifestyles is driving people to increased automobile usage. This has increased the demand for fossil fuels and automobile oriented infrastructure.
