At this event Mr. Manfred Breithaupt (GTZ) and Mr. Holger Dalkmann (TRL) will present the new sourcebook module titled “Transport and Climate Change”, which is the latest publication in the GTZ Sustainable Urban Transport series, and discuss available instruments to reduce carbon dioxide emissions in the transport sector.
The module summarises the challenges that climate change mitigation has to face in the transport sector and presents the major options and instruments available to deal with them. The module also explains the various sustainable transport policy and planning options and sketches out their potential for reducing carbon dioxide emissions.With the new module, the GTZ Sustainable Urban Transport Sourcebook now has 26 modules focussing on various issues of transportation. All the modules are available to download from the SUTP websites at no cost (http://www.sutp.org and http://www.sutp.cn for Chinese users). For more information on the sourcebook click here .
