Transport and Covid-19: responses and resources

Decarbonising Transport in Latin American Cities

The Decarbonising Transport in Latin American Cities (DTLA) project aims to help policy makers in three Latin American cities (Bogotá, Buenos Aires and Mexico City) to achieve their CO2 reduction ambitions for the transport sector. In collaboration with the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), the ITF will provide local policy makers with better quantitative evidence on the actual impact of CO2 mitigation measures. To this end, the ITF will develop strategic transport models for each of the three cities. They will allow decision makers in the cities to test and select the most effective policy pathways for achieving their transport CO2 reduction goals to 2050.

The project also encompasses systematic and inclusive policy dialogue. Latin American transport stakeholders will discuss the modelling results regarding the effectiveness of mitigation measures. This dialogue aims to encourage the implementation of collectively-developed mitigation pathways and will bring together Latin American governments, private sector, sectorial organisations, multilateral development banks and research institutions.
