Addressing the reduction of greenhouse gases in the transport sector requires integrated strategies including mass transit, non-motorised transport, parking management, intelligent transport systems and awareness raising. Such strategies have multiple co-benefits such as air quality, accessibility and reduction of congestion. In this context, a major component of the project is to develop a proposal for an internationally supported pilot NAMA in 2012, which can be submitted to the UNFCCC. Therefore, GIZ will support the newly established working group on transport and climate change in the Ministry.
In Indonesia, the TRANSfer project intends to develop an urban transport programme as a first supported pilot NAMA, likely to be implemented in three stages: developing the framework and capacity building, implementation in pilot-cities, and full scale implementation in Indonesia. These ideas build on concrete activities on advancing urban transport defined in the national action plan for climate change mitigation (RAN-GRK) in Indonesia, and could contribute to achieving its voluntary target of 26-41% below business as usual in 2020. In the coming month, the project team and the Indonesian MoT will further develop the idea and draft the NAMA proposal for international support.
TRANSfer is a project funded by the International Climate Initiative aiming to advance transport-NAMAs, and includes Indonesia, Colombia and South Africa as case studies. It runs from January 2011 to September 2013.
