NS-319 - Implementation of Climate Change Mitigation Strategies in the Passenger Transport Sector


NAMA Seeking Support for Implementation

  • A Overview
    • A.1Party
      A.2Title of Mitigation Action
      A.3Description of mitigation action
      This NAMA aims to prepare and ensure a sustainable implementation of climate change mitigation actions in the Passenger sub-area of the transportation sector. The NAMA will focus on three pilot cities: Quito, Guayaquil and Cuenca and later evaluate the sustainability of spreading its implementation to a national scale . The preparation will ensure economic, institutional, social and environmental sustainability of the whole project. The NAMA development process will generate a specific tool  to allow concerned authorities to arbitrate the right decisions to reach Climate Change Mitigation in the Passenger Transportation sub-area in matter of mitigation strategies, Monitoring Reporting and Validation (MRV) Plan and funding strategy.

      F.1.3Comments on Financial support
      The measures will require financial support of different modalities such as soft loans, participation of international funds (environmental funds or energy efficiency), multilateral banks and possibilities of sponsoring (by municipalities, ministries, chambers of commerce, trade associations, etc.). Private sector opportunities through sponsorships and manufacturers, workshop associations, etc. are to be taken into consideration as well.

      F.3.3Comments on Capacity Building support
      Necessary activities to strengthen the administrative capacity of the entities that must implement the measures. Capacity requirements shall be mainly oriented to support the creation of new financial incentives and mechanisms.
  • G Estimated emission reductions
    • G.1Amount
      G.3Additional imformation (e.g. if available, information on the methodological approach followed)
      The amount above is a cumulative amount to be reach in 2030 for an incremental implementation of the NAMA related mitigation actions starting in 2018. The amount of estimated emission reductions was calculated as the difference between the “Business as Usual” emissions trend and the emissions reduction, for three pilote cities: Quito, Guayaquil and Cuenca. Calculations have been performed for each city taking in account the potential mitigation associated to several policies and actions in the context of each municipality. Finally, the emissions reduction estimated for each town were summed, giving the value in G.1.

      In general, as transportation depends almost only on fossil fuels, energy security is a major issue for the sector. There is a direct link between energy security and climate change mitigation actions focused on alternative fuel options like bio-fuel or electrification. The proper demand measurement allows a better logistic for the vehicles stock and so, a decrease in the transportation costs, the travel distances and or/durations and positively affects productivity, working conditions and general living conditions for the freight transportation workers. Some of the higher costs generated by an inefficient transport system is the time lost by traffic congestion. Some of the major improvements are the ones related to a better public health and the impact of a sustainable transportation development on air pollution, noise exposure, vibrations, and infrastructures safety and quality.

      • Environemental co-benefits: Better air quality, natural resources protection, biodiversity protection, noise reduction, land cover/use, better energy management.
      • Social co-benefits: Public health, quality of life, traffic reliability and safety, access to an affordable and sustainable mobility, social cohesion and mobility equality, passengers comfort, urban-rural conectivity, traffic fluidity improvement.
      • Economical co-benefits: Traveling time saving, traveling cost related savings, system reliability, public incomes, tickets pricing, jobs creation, better energy safety, public health related savings.
      • Other co-benefits: Better institutional context and infrastructural conditions, better resilience and adaptation to climate change.
