Climate change is at the top of United Nations' priorities and has become a challenge for many organizations and forums dealing with climate change mitigation and adaptation. There is also common understanding for the need to increase the capacity of countries in dealing with this challenge. India is working towards achieving net-zero emissions by 2070.
Transport is one of the sectors targeted where effective public interventions are being called for to reduce CO2 emissions and where adaptation measures are needed to reduce the vulnerability to climatic changes. Currently, the CO2 emissions in the transport sector are about 30% in the case of developed countries and about 23% in the case of the total man-made CO2 emissions worldwide. There is widespread agreement to reduce CO2 emissions from transport by a minimum of 50% at the latest by 2050.
