India roadmap on low carbon and sustainable mobility
The Indian transport sector comprises distinct modes such as railways, road, inland waterways, air, and marine transport systems. Overall, 18% of India’s CO2 emissions come from road transport. The current challenge before India is to evolve a strategy, which ensures rapid economic growth in line with the aspirations of the people and at the same having a growth trajectory which is sustainable from an environmental and climate change perspective. This report provides a bottom-up stakeholder driven actionable vision with an operational focus for the Transport sector in the context of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as well as the objectives of India’s Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) under the Paris Agreement. It provides a direction for greater policy visibility on low carbon and sustainable mobility ecosystem in India through an integrated approach and actionable recommendations for the short-term (upto 2022), medium-term (2022 to 2030) and long-term (2030 to 2050).
