Description

Description The Transport Decarbonisation Alliance (TDA) was launched in 2018 to bring together countries, cities/regions and companies, the “3 Cs”, as the major drivers in sustainable, low carbon mobility:

1. Substantiate scaled-up ambition for the transport sector 2. Design common pathways and strategies 3. Set up “3 Cs Communities of Interest” 4. Set the scene for more ambition and action in policy framework on climate change and sustainable development.

The TDA ambition is to become the most visible and infl�uential forum for public and private cooperation and to be the game changer that will ensure all the transport sub-sectors contribute to the Paris Agreement’s objectives.

Objectives A unique collaboration to accelerate the worldwide transformation of the transport

sector towards a net-zero emissions mobility system before 2050.

TDA is part of the 12 climate commitments made at the One Planet Summit in September 2017.

Activities TDA 3 Cs members sign the TDA charter and

commit to: 1. Make a public commitment to accelerate action to decarbonise transport to meet a “net-zero emissions” sector as soon as possible; 2. Share regular up-to-date information about their objectives, actions, progress and experiences in decarbonising transport; 3. Promote strategic direction, action guidelines and tools provided by the TDA ecosystem; 4. Contribute actively to the promotion of the TDA objectives (as TDA Ambassadors);

A total of 70 organisations have currently signed the call for Zero Emission Freight Vehicles.

Goals The Transport Decarbonisation Alliance (TDA) brings together countries, cities/regions and companies, the “3 Cs”, as the major drivers in sustainable, low carbon mobility. The TDA has the following goal that they will aim to achieve in a collective effort:

1. Substantiated scaled-up ambition for the transport sector: designing a common vision for “front-runners” 2. Tangible action: setting up “3 Cs Communities of Interest” 3. Effective advocacy: influencing political decision-makers in key international fora on climate change (e.g. UNFCCC), sustainable development (e.g. UN High Level Political Forum – SDGs); international political processes (e.g. EU, G7, G20, B20) and through bilateral dialogues.

Comments on indicators and goals
How will goals be achieved By active advocacy in key international processes (e.g. Talanoa Dialogue, EU, Global

Climate Action Summit, HLPF 2018, COP), political events (e.g. G20, G7, One Planet Summit), and business and city events (e.g. Movin’On Summit)."By active advocacy in key international processes (e.g. Talanoa Dialogue, EU, Global Climate Action Summit, HLPF 2018, COP), political events (e.g. G20, G7, One Planet Summit), and business and city events (e.g. Movin’On Summit)." cannot be used as a page name in this wiki.
