Transport in Nationally Determined Contributions

Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) made by parties to the Paris Agreement are essential to getting the transport sector on track towards decarbonisation. But most NDCs lack detail on sectoral decarbonisation plans and targets required to deliver them.

This brief, prepared for COP28 and building on the modelling in the ITF Transport Outlook 2023, argues that governments should provide Paris Agreement-aligned transport emission-reduction targets in their NDCs, and back up these targets with domestic action.
