NS-254 - NAMA Urban Passenger Transport Ulaanbaatar


NAMA Seeking Support for Implementation

  • A Overview
    • A.1Party
      A.2Title of Mitigation Action
      A.3Description of mitigation action
      The overall objective of the NAMA is to establish a sustainable urban passenger transport system in Ulaanbaatar thereby reducing GHG emissions and improving social, economic and environmental parameters. The NAMA achieves this by inducing a transformational change in the city towards lowcarbon sustainable passenger transport by doubling the mode share of public transport compared to BAU, by reducing congestion and time lost in traffic and by increasing the city liveability and attractiveness. Economic and population growth can be decoupled from GHG emission growth in passenger transport whilst improving social, economic and environmental indicators. The NAMA contributes by around 20% towards achieving the mitigation target of 14% lower GHG emissions compared to BAU as set out in the INDC of Mongolia. The four Mitigation Actions included under this NAMA are the following:

      MA1: BRT system with 65km of bus-only lanes

      MA2: Establishment of a metro of 18km

      MA3: Retrofit of taxis to LPG

      MA4: Low-carbon buses including hybrids and electric trolleybuses

      F.3.3Comments on Capacity Building support
      NAMA Enabling Activities (EAs) are interventions that create necessary, favourable or conducive conditions for the uptake of the Mitigation Actions and, therefore, have an indirect impact on GHG emission reductions and SD benefits. They include the establishment of a NAMA Managing Entity which cooperates between stakeholders, supervises NAMA implementation and realizes the various Enabling Activities, the implementation of a NAMA MRV System including an urban GHG transport inventory, NAMA Policy Support, consisting in technical and policy advice, coordination and facilitation activities in areas such as integrated ticketing, modal integration, TDM and NMT and NAMA Capacity Building and Training.
