      This field is limited by 200 characters.

      A.3Description of mitigation action

      The Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Action (NAMA) proposed in this document involves a freight logistics policy, a freight improvement program and freight vehicle scrappage and fleet renewal as part of a general support for the implementation of the policies referred to above. This will enable the country to improve its logistics performance indicators, thereby increasing its competitiveness and gaining other benefits from the improvements implemented.

  • E Cost
    • E.1.1Estimated full cost of preparation
      Conversion to USD: 15,000,000
      E.1.2Comments on estimated full cost of preparation
      This cost is related to the preparation of a complete freight policy in the country, as is being developed by the Ministry of Transport in Colombia. It is described in the CONPES policy document number 3779.
      E.2.1Estimated full cost of implementation
      Conversion to USD: 0
      E.2.2Comments on estimated full cost of implementation
      This relates to the implementation of the freight improvement program as indicated in CONPES policy documents 3489 (to modernize the sector), 3547 (for a national logistics plan) and 3579 (of fleet renovation).
      E.3.1Estimated incremental cost of implementation
      Conversion to USD: 530,000
      E.3.2Comments on estimated incremental cost of implementation
      The incremental costs are specifically from support of  Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) via its TRANSfer project which has supported the work of this NAMA from 2011 which included the development of studies for the consolidation of the sector and the development of an MRV along with overarching support in the development of the NAMA, and InterAmerican Development Bank (IDB) via its work in the development of a NAMA for the sector in a study done in 2011.
  • F Estimated emission reductions
    • F.1Amount

      This amount has to be in units of MtCO2e (Million metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent) or MtCO2e/yr (Million metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent per year)

      F.3Additional information (e.g. if available, information on the methodological approach followed)
  • G Other indicators
    • G.1Other indicators of implementation
  • H Other relevant information
    • H.1Other relevant information including co-benefits for local sustainable development
      Calculations were also made for particulate matter (PM) emissions which arrives at 1,300 tons per year. The reduction of accidents because of the implementation of the freight policy for the first year of implementation was 150 fatal accidents, 715 serious accidents and 4,000 simple accidents.
      Reduction of diesel consumption due to the implementation of the policy is 93 million gallons in the first year.
