A paradigm shift towards sustainable low-carbon transport
Institute for Transportation & Development Policy, 2010
Institute for Transportation and Development Policy
The work described in this report was carried out by the Transport Research Laboratory (TRL), and has benefited from an extensive consultation with, and reviews from, key experts in transport and climate policy around the world.
The authors are grateful to the Institute for Transportation & Development Policy (ITDP) for making this work possible and, in particular, Mr. Michael Replogle and Mr. Michael Kodransky for their personal support.
The work is made in contribution to the aims of the Partnership on Sustainable Low-Carbon Transport (SLoCaT Partnership), a group of organisations working to enhance the contributions of the transport sector in addressing climate change within the context of sustainable development.
This White Paper draws from and is intended to contribute to a number of other related initiatives, for example the work conducted by the German Technical Cooperation (GTZ) on its Sourcebook Module on Financing
The paper is an initial attempt to identify the challenges and actions needed to finance the paradigm shift towards sustainable, low-carbon transport in developing countries. It is meant to be a living document, to which further work by SLoCaT members can be added.
