Initiatives and Partnerships

The main goal of the transport Initiatives and Partnerships is to find and implement sustainable pathways that limit greenhouse gas emissions and minimize other negative consequences without compromising economic growth and social inclusion.

Transport Initiatives and Partnerships aim to:
1. Better integrate transport into national and international climate negotiations.
2. Better integrate climate change into national and international transport policies.

The gTKP is involved in a number of Initiatives and Partnerships around the world and this section provides the related links and information.


Global Fuel Economy Initiative (GFEI)

The Global Fuel Economy Initiative (GFEI) is a partnership of the International Energy Agency (IEA), United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), International Transport Forum of the OECD (ITF), International Council on Clean Transportation (ICCT), Institute for Transportation Studies at UC Davis, and the FIA Foundation, which works to secure real improvements in fuel economy, and the maximum deployment of existing fuel economy technologies in vehicles across the world.

The PPMC is an open and inclusive platform that actively invites all organizations and initiatives that support effective action on transport and climate change to join in the process. 


Partnership on Sustainable Low Carbon Transport (SLoCaT)

C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group

The C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group, now in its 10th year, connects more than 80 of the world’s greatest cities, representing over 600 million people and one quarter of the global economy. Created and led by cities, C40 is focused on tackling climate change and driving urban action that reduces greenhouse gas emissions and climate risks, while increasing the health, wellbeing and economic opportunities of urban citizens.


Convention of the Parties (COP)

The COP is the supreme decision-making body of the Convention. A key task for the COP is to review the national communications and emission inventories submitted by Parties. Based on this information, the COP assesses the effects of the measures taken by Parties and the progress made in achieving the ultimate objective of the Convention. The COP meets every year, unless the Parties decide otherwise.
