TEPR Projects: Support for climate mitigation policies in transport, internationally
The environmental and other problems caused by transport are not limited to Europe. Environmental problems, such as climate change and poor air quality, are global problems to which all countries contribute (although the extent of their contributions varies significantly). However, thankfully, many of the solutions, including those in the transport sector, are also similar, although these will need to be tailored to take account of local circumstances and needs.
As a result of its experience in the EU and UK, TEPR (and TEPR’s Ian Skinner) is increasingly working in other countries around the globe to support countries in addressing the adverse impacts of their transport policies. Ongoing work includes:
- UK PACT Programme. TEPR is proud to contribute to the UK PACT roster of experts. The UK PACT programme is funded by the UK’s Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy. The programme aims to improve the capacity and capability of key institutions in partner countries so that they can deliver accelerated GHG emission reductions and raise the ambition of countries’ targets (in the form of their Nationally Determined Contributions; NDCs) in order to help to deliver the aspirations of the UN’s Paris Agreement.
- Assessment of mitigation potentials of priority actions in the transport sector. Ian Skinner of TEPR is currently providing support (as part of a wider project team) to an African country for the development of mitigation scenarios for the country’s transport sector to inform the updating of the country’s NDC.
