This technical document includes four case studies commissioned in two Asian and two Latin American cities as part of a project on climate instruments in the transport sector. It analyzes nationally appropriate mitigation actions (NAMAs) in Jakarta (Indonesia), Mexico City (Mexico), Belo Horizonte (Brazil), and Hefei (People’s Republic of China). Taken together, the studies demonstrate that NAMAs in the transport sector have the potential to achieve significant greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reductions and provide a substantial contribution to sustainable development. They also give the first on-the-ground evidence of the policies and guidelines that will need to be in place in any post-2012 climate agreement for transport NAMAs to achieve their full potential.
