Transport accounts for 23% of worldwide energy-related CO2 emissions, according to the latest estimates of the International Energy Agency, and 19% of these transport-related emissions come from Asia. Asia’s share in total worldwide transport–related CO2 emissions is expected to increase significantly, accounting for more than 50% of the sector increase and growing from 1 billion tons of CO2 in 2006 to 2.3 billion tons by 2030. A paper was produced that highlights the relevance of measuring greenhouse gas emissions from the transport sector and proposes a methodology to be adopted that would support the development of sustainable, low carbon systems in developing countries. This paper was aimed especially at transport authorities to strengthen formulation and implementation of policies and measures that can reduce emissions of air pollutants and GHG.
