Transport and Covid-19: responses and resources

Transport Climate Action Directory: Endorsements

Transport Climate Action Directory


"The International Transport Forum's TRANSPORT CLIMATE ACTION DIRECTORY is a key tool for moving from ambition to climate action - our most urgent challenge in climate policy today.

Governments now have a new resource to help them choose mitigation and adaptation measures that work in their specific context and that support their objectives.

I hope that many countries will make use of the TRANSPORT CLIMATE ACTION DIRECTORY when they revise their NDCs this year.

The International Transport Forum's TRANSPORT CLIMATE ACTION DIRECTORY is a milestone for integrated climate policy and a trailblazer for a broader, cross-sectoral approach to combatting climate change.

I commend the Decarbonising Transport initiative and its more than 70 partners led by the International Transport Forum, for their exemplary effort in creating this tool.

The UNFCCC endorses the TRANSPORT CLIMATE ACTION DIRECTORY for use by governments, the private sector and all climate stakeholders in their quest to implement the most effective transport climate policies and measures."

Patricia Espinosa
Executive Secretary, United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC)

“To precisely gauge progress on climate change mitigation, our
research must be current with the thousands of country-, region-, and city-level policies that affect the transport sector, its energy use, and its GHG emissions.

The TRANSPORT CLIMATE ACTION helps policymakers understand and choose measures. It also provides a thorough, valuable, systematic tool for researchers to count and classify real-world actions, helping to measure how local actions are adding up to global decarbonisation.”

“Technological innovations will be key drivers for the digitalisation and decarbonisation of transport. As global leader in automotive chips, we’re committed to support governments in accelerating these transitions. And we’re convinced the pace of the transitions can really benefit from the TRANSPORT CLIMATE ACTION DIRECTORY!”
