ITF creates indicator to assess nations' engagement in decarbonising the transport sector

It will be updated every Monday

The International Transport Forum (ITF) at the OECD has launched today the "Transport NDC Tracker", a new indicator for monitor how the transport sector is taken in consideration in decarbonisation commitments taken by nations that have acceded to the Climate Agreement to Paris. The indicator assesses whether the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC), the voluntary national contributions provided for under the decarbonization plans that these nations have presented under the Agreement, mention transport in national plans, whether transport decarbonisation measures are included in these and, finally, whether the national plans set targets for reducing the CO2 produced by transport. the new indicator will updated every Monday to take into account the new information relating to NDCs transmitted by nations to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), as set out in the Paris Agreement.

Signatories to the Paris Climate Agreement are required to submit new NDCs every five years. The first were presented in 2015 and the latter, due to the delay due to the pandemic of Covid-19, they will be on the occasion of the twenty-sixth conference of the United Nations on climate change to be held between 31 October and 12 November in Glasgow.

The first survey carried out by the ITF on the basis of data available last Monday shows that 94% of the 191 nations party to the Agreement refers in some way to the sector of transport in their NDCs, which 77% of nations have included in its NDCs measures concerning transport and that 14% of nations has set concrete targets for CO2 reduction generated by transport.

Announcing the creation of the new indicator, the FTI has highlighted that climate change cannot be arrested without decarbonising transport, sector that depends for more than 90% on fossil fuels and is responsible for about a quarter of global CO2 emissions related to energy. The ITF also pointed out that, at difference of other sectors, carbon dioxide emissions produced by transport continue to increase.
