Description SLoCaT is a voluntary multi-stakeholder initiative with the goal of mobilising global support for reducing the growth of GHG emissions generated by land transport in developing countries by promoting more sustainable, low carbon transport. SloCaT improves the knowledge on sustainable low carbon transport, helps develop better policies and catalyse their implementation.
Objectives The Partnership has as its overarching goal to mobilize global support to promote sustainable, low carbon transport and thereby reduce the growth of GHG emissions generated by land transport in developing countries and maximize the contribution of transport to poverty eradication and sustainable development.

The partnership has four specific objectives: The integration of sustainable, low carbon transport in climate negotiations, as well as national and local climate policies and programs; the integration of climate considerations in regional, national and local transport policies; Mainstream Sustainable, Low Carbon Transport in strategies and operations of international development organizations; Contribute to sustainable development, the millennium development goals as well as the post-2015 sustainable development goals by providing access to or for goods and services by lower income groups.
