The CO2 emissions from the transport sector account for about 20% of the total human-induced greenhouse emissions worldwide. The sector spans transport systems for commercial use and leisure, and vehicles used on land, air, inland waterways and seas. With a view to providing sustainable transport and mitigate climate change impacts, the CTCN brings together relevant stakeholders to provide technical assistance to countries through a combination of well-established and innovative climate technology solutions. Below you will find related publications, partners, CTCN technical assistance, technologies and other information for exploring this topic further.
Developing a national policy for deploying and scaling up E-mobility and supporting sustainable infrastructure in Papua New GuineaType:Technical AssistanceDate of submission:Phase:ImplementationCountries:Cross-sectoral enabler:
Papua New Guinea’s economic development will require considerable growth in the coverage and quality of its state transport network. The total road network is 30 000 kilometers, of which 8460 km are state roads. Only 28% of the 8460 km of state roads were in a good condition as noted in 2010. A comprehensive program of rehabilitating existing roads and constructing new roads would expand the state road network to 25 000 km by 2035.
Developing a national eMobility policy and framework for deploying and scaling up e-mobility in NigeriaType:Technical AssistanceDate of submission:Phase:DesignCountries:Cross-sectoral enabler:
The transport sector contributes to the 28.4 % of total GHG emissions in Nigeria, the second largest contributor after the energy industries(40.7%). Among the six key transportation activities of road, rail, pipelines, water and air transport services, and post and courier services, the road transport takes up the most significant portion. The country has the largest road network in West Africa although still connection has not been perfect throughout the country.

Globally, the number of motorized vehicles is estimated to reach between 2 and 3 billion vehicles by 2050 with a significant number located in developing countries like Zimbabwe. Zimbabwe's motor vehicle fleet has been growing at a fast rate especially after the year 1990. The Zimbabwe Climate Change Response Strategy further identified that the nation's transport sector consumes over 1 billion liters of diesel and over 730 million liters of petrol annually. Part of the energy emissions come from the use of petroleum products in the transport sector.

Vanuatu is a small island country in the Pacific which depends almost entirely on imported fossil fuel for its energy and transport needs. The continuous reliance on these fossil fuels is not only unsustainable for Vanuatu but goes against Vanuatu’s national climate change mitigation ambition as reflected in its Nationally Determined Contributions, its Climate Change and Disaster Risk Reduction Policy, its National Energy Roadmap and Vanuatu’s Sustainable Development Plan.
