The GIZ TRANSfer project supports countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America to develop and implement climate change mitigation measures in the transport sector as „Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions“ (NAMAs). It is run by GIZ and funded by the International Climate Initiative (IKI) of the German Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB). The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) is a federally owned organisation. Working in international cooperation, GIZ is committed worldwide to sustainable development. Its mandate is to support the German government in achieving its development objectives, including the promotion sustainable transport solutions. Along with GIZ, the database received support from the Mexican-German NAMA Programme and the Sino-German Cooperation on Low Carbon Transport.
IGES are world-leading consultants and international project developers dedicated to reducing air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions in the transport and energy sectors. We work with clients across the world, with the aim of maximising economic, social and environmental benefits of reducing emissions. Our projects provide innovative technology and policy-based solutions for reducing global emissions, tailored to local conditions and needs.
We deploy advanced emissions Monitoring, Reporting and Verification (MRV) methodologies, low-carbon technologies and policy-based solutions to address many of today’s pressing air quality, climate change and low-emissions development challenges.
Our unique approach allows for effective, efficient and equitable reductions in local and global emissions of:
- Carbon dioxide
- Short-lived climate pollutants, including black carbon, ozone and methane
- Pollutants with adverse effects on human health and the environment, such as particulate matter, nitrogen oxides, hydrocarbons and sulphur oxide
The SLoCaT Partnership on Sustainable Transport (SLoCaT) is a multi-stakeholder partnership of over 90 organizations including UN agencies, Multilateral and Bilateral development organizations, NGOs and Foundations, Academe and the Business Sector.
Bridging the Gap is a multi-stakeholder initiative to link climate change and land transport more closely and gain better recognition of its potential in mitigating GHG emissions. This is further strengthened by supporting SLoCaT, the Sustainable Low Carbon Transport Partnership.
