With the impacts of climate change increasingly visible in African countries, adaptation efforts in the transport and mobility sector have become as much a priority as mitigation actions. According to the 6th IPCC report on mitigation, greenhouse gas emissions in this sector continue to increase by 2% each year and could reach +65% by 2050 due to the increase in demand for freight and passenger services in Africa and Asia.
How can we accelerate the transition in the transport sector and transform our mobility to mitigate climate change?
This workshop gathering the actors of the Climate Chance Sustainable Mobility and Transport Coalition will address the different tools needed to accelerate the transition in the mobility sector in Africa, including governance of mobility projects, awareness raising and access to finance. The workshop will also include time for sharing experiences and good practices recently identified through a call for contributions.
