Low Carbon Development: Transport in a low carbon economy

 AEA has developed a set of factsheets for the UK Department for International Development (DfID), synthesising the latest work and evidence from the major economic research institutions, multilateral institutions/organisations, and leading thinkers and consultancies working on low carbon development.

Encouraging developing countries to invest heavily in low carbon growth has had limited success so far. One reason for this is that developing countries are concerned how investments into a more resource efficient economy might impact on their prospects for growth.
Implementing climate change mitigation measures in the transport sector will contribute to the economic and social progress of developing nations by creating new jobs, healthier environments and enhanced mobility, and will reduce the vulnerability of poorer people to anthropogenic climate change impacts.
