I moved the title down a bit and subscripted the 2 in CO2 in the bullet point. Can we make the numbers darker in the dark blue hashed areas? They are a bit hard to read.
Recommendations on Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions for the Transport Sector Ned Helme, President Center for Clean Air Policy ******* Transforming Transportation 2010 Next Steps After Copenhagen: Opportunities and Challenges in the Transport Sector Inter-American Development Bank January 15, 2010
How is Transportation Different from Other High-Emitting Sectors?
CO 2 benefits of mitigation measures tend to be long-term and grow over time
Transformational opportunities are prevalent
Significant sustainable development co-benefits
Emissions baselines and CO 2 reductions are less certain and more difficult to estimate
Vehicle fuel efficiency, alternative fuels may be exceptions
Transportation measures cannot compete with mitigation measures from other sectors in terms of $/tonne
CDM illustrates these difficulties
NAMAs provide a new opportunity for developing countries to obtain up-front climate funding for transportation mitigation, to achieve low-carbon growth for this sector, and to capture sustainable development benefits
reductions in fuel subsidies, differential vehicle taxes, abolition of minimum parking requirements, congestion pricing
These are the most promising.
Likely to face similar problems to transport under the CDM
