During the global online conference Transport and Climate Change Week 2022, the Sino-German Cooperation on Low Carbon Transport (CLCT) project was pleased to invite Mr Xu Honglei, vice president at the Transport Planning and Research Institute (TPRI) of the Ministry of Transport of the People’s Republic of China, to share insights on the key challenges and ongoing efforts in decarbonising China’s transport sector, and the steps needed to stimulate its green development.
From ‘Mobility-on-demand’ to ‘Mobility-as-a Service’: Promoting China’s Transition Towards Sustainable Transport Integration
The MaaS study first analyzes the definition and global practices of MaaS. Then it depicts the current landscape, stakeholders, and barriers for China’s MoD services. With field investigations in Beijing, the Guangdong-Hongkong-Macau Greater Bay Area, Shenzhen, Guangzhou, and Foshan, local trails of MaaS cases in China were made. Based on the assessment of key components towards MaaS, the study provided policy recommendations for the further integration of MoD and the development of a Chinese MaaS ecosystem to the MoT.
This study by the Bergische Universität Wuppertal (BUW) focusses on the comparison of the last mile delivery organisation and urban logistics in Berlin, Germany and Suzhou, China. It builds on two previous studies about the courier, express and parcels (CEP) markets in Germany and China. Furthermore, the study takes a look at Berlin’s and Suzhou’s city profiles in terms of economy, transport, and parcel delivery network. By comparing the cities’ structures and their approach to last mile deliveries, greenhouse gas emissions saving potentials for Berlin will be analysed and discussed.
In recent years, the e-commerce and online retail sector in Germany and China experienced an unparalleled rise in parcel volumes. The COVID-19 pandemic and thus the increased shift to online activities encouraged this development. Simultaneously, climate protection and the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions have become a high priority. Negative effects of last mile deliveries […]
The Council for Decarbonising Transport in Asia, established under the NDC Transport Initiative for Asia (NDC TIA), launched its Flagship Report ‘The Path to Zero: A Vision for Decarbonised Transport in Asia’ on 7 April at the ADB Transport Forum 2022.
As a milestone of the Foshan SUMP pilot implementation, the online workshop was held by CSTC and GIZ with participation of CATS and the Foshan Transport Bureau as well as other local stakeholders and experts. The workshop was aimed at finalising the core elements of the strategy for the SUMP: scenario selection, vision, and objectives. During the workshop, the participants discussed 3 future scenarios (by 2035): 1. Rail-dominated development; 2. Balanced bus & rail development; 3. Multi-modal development. Selecting the 3rd scenario further informed the discussion of the vision and objectives of the SUMP. Finally, 37 city-level measures corresponding with the SUMP vision (incl. integrated transport planning, stronger motor vehicle management, and creating a vibrant active mobility environment), were introduced to gather initial stakeholder feedback.
The EU Transport and Mobility Update is a format that aims to provide news on the latest policies, events and trends in the European transport and mobility sector. Compiled by GIZ, it provides insights in technology, sustainability and innovation by highlighting recent articles. Ultimately, this format is meant to foster exchange and dialogue on advancements as well as best practices in the European transport and mobility sector.
The role of the transport sector for decarbonization strategies in Germany and the European Union (EU)
To foster the dialogue on GHG emission reduction strategies and introduce relevant international experiences to China, especially the Green Deal and the German Climate Change Act, the NDC-TIA project organised an interview with Dr Martin Lange, head of the Pollutant Reduction and Energy Saving in Transport Division of the UBA.
