Global Climate Action  

At the twenty-first session of the Conference of the Parties (COP 21) in Paris, it was agreed that mobilizing stronger and more ambitious climate action by all Parties and non-Party stakeholders is urgently required if the goals of the Paris Agreement are to be achieved.

In decision 1/CP.21, the commitments from all actors are recognized, including those launched through the Lima–Paris Action Agenda, as well as the urgent need to scale up the global response to climate change and support greater ambition from governments.

At COP 22 in Marrakech, a High-Level Event on Accelerating Climate Action was held to highlight outcomes from the Action Events throughout the conference and culminated with the launching of the Marrakech Partnership for Global Climate Action; a new framework to catalyse and support climate action.

Emissions reduction

Transport

Urban Electric Mobility Initiative

Increase sale of electric vehicles by 30% by 2030 to achieve a 30% reduction of CO2 emissions in urban areas by 2050

Lead Organisations

UN-Habitat

Objectives

UEMI aims to help phasing out the use of conventionally fuelled vehicles in cities and increase the share of electric vehicles in individual mobility (2-3 wheelers and light duty vehicles) in urban areas to at least 30% by 2030.

Roadmap and work plan

The UEMI aims to boost the share of electric vehicles in urban transport and integrate electric mobility into a wider concept of sustainable urban transport that achieves a 30% reduction of GHG emissions in urban areas by 2030.

Progress

The initiative is working on the development of a pipeline of project concepts that can be taken further towards implementation. It will also work on capacity building and the development of a toolkit on sustainable urban mobility in 2016.
