Description

Description ITS4C (Intelligent Transport Systems for Climate) is an initiative that seeks to mobilize actors of transport and mobility to promote the applications of Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) whose the effect will produce a positive impact on climate change. ITS4C was already an initiative set up in the context of the COP21. It continues in the context of the COP22 and beyond.

The ITS for Climate initiative is carried out by ATEC ITS France and TOPOS, who represent a few hundred members; more partners and supporters are expected to join in coming years.

Generally, ITS4C aims to promote and encourage the use of ITS for cities in emerging countries, and showcase French expertise and solutions which are in advance on those of most developed countries.

Objectives Facilitating co-modality of people and goods, and eco-efficient navigation as well as reducing congestion and supporting traffic management.

Encouraging local authorities to develop a clear mobility policy based on intermodality and new services for intelligent mobility to make better use of investments in infrastructure, vehicles and training. Sharing best practices and identifying best opportunities for deployment to reduce CO2 and associated GHG emissions. Improve awareness of the potential of ITS and facilitate the implementation of the best practice.

Activities The initiative has launched in 2016 a Digital Mobility Ideas Box and the results were announced at Marrakech COP22 transport day and a Hackathon (2017).

The initiative is presently building the ITS for Climate Projects & Best Practices Database to register ITS solutions proposed or implemented to address climatic issues and is launching an international research program aimed at developing a methodology and a toolbox to precisely measure the impact of current and foreseen ITS projects and develop coordinated deployment plan of ITS Solutions specially in large cities and insulated territories.

One or two success stories achieved ERTICO ITS Observatory to collect and promote ITS success stories (work in progress).

Indicators
Goals ITS for Climate Initiative aims to take a stand in favor of using ITS solutions to work towards a lowcarbon, resilient world and to limit global warming below the 2-degree target and contribute to adaptation to climate change in large cities and isolated territories.

ITS actors represented in ATEC-ITS France and TOPOS Aquitaine, are committed to mobilizing a large coalition of stakeholders in order to promote ITS applications to climate change actions and policies, with the view to contribute to COP21’s objective to limit global warming to less than 2ºC above pre-industrial levels. The initiative will spread awareness about ITS, and deliver accurate information; train and develop experts; promote “cross-fertilize” to build on past successes, develop incentive programs for ITS project deployment.

Progress towards the goals
How are you tracking progress of your initiative The initiative is presently building « ITS for Climate Projects & Best Practices Database » to register ITS solutions proposed or implemented to address climatic issues and is launching a international research program aimed at developing a methodology and a toolbox to precisely measure the impact of current and foreseen ITS projects and develop coordinated deployment plan of ITS Solutions specially in large cities and insulated territories.

The initiative expects to have more partners and supporters joining in this year and will seek support across all continents, through different actions such as communication during ITS, smart cities and climate change congresses. The initiative has launched in 2016 a « Digital Mobility Ideas Box », which results will be announced at Marrakech COP22 transport day and a Hackathon (taking place early 2017). ITS for Climate works on launching a research program aimed at developing a methodology and toolbox to precisely measure the impact of current and foreseen ITS projects and develop coordinated deployment plan of ITS Solutions in large cities and insulated territories.
