The Paris Agreement on climate change sets an overall long-term direction for climate change policy which should be in line with the ambitious target of limiting temperature increase (’well below 2°C’ above pre-industrial levels, and to aim for a temperature increase of not more than 1.5°C’). Therefore, each sector of human activity, including the Transport sector, must define its course of action whilst taking into account: a decarbonization timeline of 2050-2060 for the most developed, and 2060-2080 for less developed economies. To reach the transport sector goal, the PPMC proposes the development of a Global Macro-Roadmap through a phased action process, covering a 2020-2050+ timeline and thereby covering both short as well as mid- to long-term actions. This Roadmap aims to give a realistic (technically feasible) vision, with an operational focus for each segment of the Transport sector (people and freight; road, railway, aviation, waterborne; urban and rural). It is driven by new sustainable and inclusive growth opportunities called for by the SDGs.
The PPMC is conducting a second round of consultations on the updated Discussion Draft: “An Actionable Vision of Transport Decarbonization”, which takes into account comments received during COP22 from March 1st until March 15th, 2017. Comments can be submitted through the downloadable comments form and will be discussed as part of the PPMC stakeholder meeting on March 24th 2016 in Paris.
