14 countries in Asia have set themselves net zero carbon targets by mid-century. Nine further countries have signed the Aichi Declaration on “Making Transport in Asia Sustainable”, which includes a decarbonisation goal in line with pathways towards full decarbonisation in 2050. Together, 94% of Asia’s transport sector emissions are thereby covered by targets, but how to achieve them remains a matter of debate.   

Alok Jain, Member of the Council for Decarbonising Transport in Asia highlights opportunities to develop transport strategies that align climate protection with social wellbeing, and policy makers discuss how to move from climate targets to real-world implementation of country-specific policy packages for zero carbon transport.
