  • En Route to COP 26 - Session 2: How can national climate plans enable the transition to sustainable transport?

    1 December 2020  14:00 - 16:30

    Where to meet: Online

    En Route to COP 26 is a high-level event to drive action for zero-emission transport now. In the spirit
    of co-conception, co-creation and co-delivery, the event is co-organised by Deutsche Gesellschaft für
    Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), EuroClima+, Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and
    Industry, FIA Foundation, Institute for Transportation and Development, International Association of
    Public Transport, Movin’On, Rocky Mountain Institute, SLOCAT Partnership, Sustainable Mobility for All,
    Transport Decarbonisation Alliance, Transport Scotland, World Resources Institute.

    The  session 2 of the event aims to provide an understanding of economic, social and policy opportunitiesthat will equip policy makers to create a transformative national agenda withcomplementary measures towards sustainable, low carbon transport. Experts will sharecases that have exhibited the benefits of actively shifting towards low carbon transportduring the last 5 years until present, through their recent national strategies. Participants willbe asked to reflect on examples of transport sector strategies and their potential to promptand guide long-term change to ensure countries holistically address socio-economic andenvironmental goals during this critical moment.

    Rana Adib, the Executive Director of REN21, will speak during the Panel V of the session 2 on the topic of "Strengthening transport in NDCs for maximum impact".

2 December 2020
  • En Route to COP26 Session – Accelerating towards zero carbon vehicles

    2 December 2020  20:00 - 22:30

    Where to meet: Online

    Five years after the Paris Agreement on Climate Change, transport emissions are still rising. Transitioning to  zero-carbon transport worldwide is essential to keep climate change in check, but there is are still many barriers  to be overcome and more ambition needed to accelerate the switch from Internal Combustion Engines (ICEs)  to Electric Vehicles (EVs), as part of the strategy to reduce emissions. En Route to COP26 will put the key players — policy-makers, transport experts, corporate decision-makers, planners, and entrepreneurs — in the same  virtual room to collaborate on driving collective and timely action for zero-carbon transport now. 

    Rana Adib, Executive Director of REN21, would participate in the session entitled Accelerating towards zero carbon vehicles. The session is organised by the FIA Foundation, with support from the Rocky Mountain  Institute (RMI) and the International Association of Public Transport (UITP) and will explore the need for a  radical shift away from the ICE powertrain.

    In particular, Rana with the other speakers, will discuss what needs to be done in terms of  regulation, behaviour change, and creating demand certainty in the market, as well as showcasing plans and  good practice in pursuit of that change.
