Multilingual Transport Outlook resources available

The Executive Summary of our flagship publication - the ITF Transport Outlook 2021 - is now translated into nine languages. The Outlook provides scenarios for the development of transport demand up to 2050 and charts how to reshape transport for a cleaner environment and a fairer society. Go to the Transport Outlook 2021

Zero carbon supply chains

Our latest report assesses the potential of zero carbon supply chains via a case study of the freight transport chain linked to the port of Hamburg, Germany. It analyses initiatives taken to decarbonise freight transport and offers recommendations on accelerating the move towards zero carbon supply chains.

Tackling "hard to abate" transport sectors

A new ITF project will support countries in their transition to low carbon transport systems. With a specific focus on "hard to abate" modes, like heavy-duty road freight transport, shipping and aviation, the "DT Implement" project promotes a shift to sustainable and smart passenger and freight transport and the use of clean energy. It advances energy efficiency and reductions in CO2 and local pollution while enhancing social equity and inclusivity. Learn more about DT Implement

UNFCCC Climate Action Pathway for Transport 

Climate Action Pathways are a vital part of the Marrakech Partnership tools to fully implement the Paris Agreement. Launched in 2019, they set out sectoral visions for achieving a 1.5°C resilient world in 2050 through transformational milestones. As one of its leading contributors, alongside Slocat and GIZ, the ITF thanks all partners who provided inputs to the Transport Pathway, which launched on 25 June. Access the Pathway

Life-cycle assessment for Indian decarbonisation

Our latest study for India focuses on learning from life-cycle assessment of emissions in transport and how current knowledge can support India’s decarbonisation policies. It also identifies policy priorities and potential regulatory gaps arising from new vehicle technologies, fuel types and mobility services entering the mass market. The work is part of our NDC Transport Initiative for Asia project. Read the study

Ministers focus on raising ambition ahead of COP26

In the crucial run-up to COP26, the ITF 2021 Summit Ministers’ Roundtable on Transport and Climate Change: Moving forward from COP25 - the fifth of its kind - focused on raising ambitions for transport climate action. Ministers shared policy priorities including co-operation between countries and among different sectors; the role of public transport for greater sustainability; phasing out fossil fuels across all transport modes; and the development of joint efforts in Covid-19 recovery and climate change actions. Outputs will feed into the COP26 high-level transport dialogue.

New model shows huge emissions growth for India

According to the ITF Indian Urban Mobility Model, total CO2 emissions (well-to-wheel) from the urban mobility sector in Indian cities will grow by 300% between 2020 and 2050. The database of the new model provides insights into the base year and future mobility patterns and trends for 108 urban agglomerations in India under the baseline scenario. The data are freely available in support of sustainable urban transport policies for India. Access the database
