The “Sustainable Transport in China” Blog informs about latest developments in green and sustainable transport. We provide news, opinions and reports on policy and technology developments in urban transportation, freight transportation, and people transportation in China and the world.
The blog is run by the team of the China Low Carbon Transportation (CLCT) Project of the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH in Beijing with contributions from the transportation cluster of GIZ.
Established in 2010, the Sustainable Transport team of GIZ in China focuses on the development of a low carbon transport system based on five pillars:
- carbon accounting and emission evaluation in transportation
- climate protection and energy efficiency strategies and policies in transportation
- green freight logistics
- sustainable urban transport
The postings on this blog are related to the work of the China Low Carbon Transportation team. Particularly, we work with our Chinese partners on the national, provincial and city level to design and implement measures, strategies and universal standards for climate change mitigation, energy efficiency and environmental protection in China’s transport sector.
The project is funded by the International Climate Initiative of the German Ministry for Environment.
Sino-German cooperation on Low Carbon Transport
The project supports the Sino-German policy dialogue on climate change mitigation strategies in the transport sector with a focus on both urban and freight transport. The policy dialogue is further enhanced by the establishment of an international council of experts, which facilitates the exchange of experiences and intensive advisory support all the way to the director general and vice-ministerial level.
