On 3rd December 2022, the Sino-German Sustainable Forum of the 2022 World Transport Conference was successfully held, with the theme of “Shaping Zero Carbon and Sustainable Future Mobility”. At the forum, Mr. Messner, Director General of the German Federal Environment Agency (UBA), delivered an online keynote speech, which included in-depth discussions on international cooperation on climate and transport.
Sustainable Urban Mobility Planning (SUMP) in the Chinese Urban Context -Lessons from the SUMP Foshan Pilot Project
Drawing on Foshan’s experience with SUMP, the report provides a localised approach for policy makers and planners in Chinese cities seeking to foster climate friendly urban transport while reflecting the needs of transportation stakeholders and residents, and to further integrate the SUMP concept into their transport and mobility planning systems.
The SUMP Foshan Pilot Project was conducted in collaboration with the Transport Bureau of Foshan (Foshan TB), the Foshan Public Transportation Management Co. (Foshan TC), the China Sustainable Transportation Center (CSTC), and was supported by Rupprecht Consult. The report follows the development of the SUMP Foshan Pilot Project according to the SUMP process.
Against the background of global climate change, cities around the world are under immense pressure to make their transport and mobility systems more sustainable and climate-friendly. Thanks to great advancements in technology including electro-mobility, shared mobility, autonomous driving and Big Data-based smart traffic management systems, opportunities are now available to make transport and mobility systems […]
The video Introduced Foshan and its mobility landscape and provides insights into the city’s efforts in exploring a green mobility development path, such the construction of light rail and cycling lane infrastructure or improvements in bus services. It emphasises the solid foundation for sustainable mobility already built Foshan as well as the need for further improvement in areas such as car-dependency or poor connectivity of active mobility networks.
This report helps to better understand the developments in the Chinese drone market and drone industry as well as the legal framework, to trace different approaches to pilot projects and to assess the future potential of this sector.
The study identifies the key challenges of NELV adoption in China, provides a detailed analysis of future trends and application scenarios, and outlines a set of comprehensive policy recommendations for promoting NELVs in the development of a low carbon urban delivery sector. In order to produce these outputs, the study has examined China’s current NELV development status, conducted a stakeholder analysis, carried out local investigations in five pilot cities of the Green Urban Freight Pilot Programme and interviewed stakeholders from the city of Zhangjiakou.
The electrification of large vehicle fleets, especially taxi fleets, is a necessary component for achieving international and national climate targets. This measure can also make an important contribution to reducing particulate matter and noise pollution in cities. In China, local governments are increasingly intervening in the design of urban taxi fleets through regulatory measures by […]
On 26th August 2022, GIZ together with Smart Freight Centre (SFC), Energy Foundation China and other institutes have co-hosted the Zero Emission Medium and Heavy-Duty Commercial Vehicles Forum at the World New Energy Vehicle Congress (WNEVC) 2022. The Zero Emission Freight Initiative (ZEFI), industry voluntary platform, has been launched at the Forum.
Decarbonising China’s Transport Sector – Workshop on Developing Road Transport Carbon Emission Models for Chinese Cities
To support Chinese cities by engaging experts and decisionmakers at municipal and provincial levels in introducing best practices from Europe and China in city-level transport emissions model development and applications, a workshop on Decarbonising China’s Transport Sector was held online on 15th August, 2022. This workshop explored the current challenges and opportunities for the establishment of transport emission models and facilitating peer-to-peer learning among Chinese cities/provinces, with a focus on introducing modelling methodologies for urban transport emissions in Chinese cities.
