NITI Aayog will launch the “Decarbonising Transport in India” project in collaboration with International Transport Forum (ITF). The project would be launched to develop a pathway towards a low-carbon transport system for India. It will design a tailor-made transport emissions assessment framework for India and facilitate the government with a comprehensive understanding of present as well as future transport activities along with the related CO2 emissions.
The project “Decarbonising Transport in India” is a part of the International Transport Forum’s “Decarbonising Transport in Emerging Economies (DTEE)” family of projects. DTEE supports transport decarbonisation across different world regions such as Argentina, Azerbaijan, Morocco and India.
