COP26 ITF Side Event: Decarbonising Transport: Driving implementation in hard-to-abate sectors
10:00 - 11:30 CET
This event will discuss the policy challenges and opportunities in the quest to decarbonise hard-to-abate transport sectors, which include heavy-duty road freight, shipping and aviation transport. The first section of this event will focus on the broader decarbonising transport framework to identify solutions and transformational opportunities that stakeholders can collaborate on. After setting the scene, the ITF will present policy options that are available to decarbonise the three transport sub-sectors, showcasing the work that the ITF has done in the context of its Transport Climate Action Directory (TCAD). The ITF will further present its work under the “DT Implement” project, funded by the European Commission, that brings together different stakeholder groups from both the Global North and South. These stakeholders are working on the development of concrete pathways for policy makers to deploy and accelerate technical and policy solutions that will help decarbonise the hard-to-abate sectors.
