Join the LEDS Latin America and the Caribbean Regional Platform (LEDS LAC) for their webinar entitled ‘Tool for estimating greenhouse gas emissions in transport-oriented development projects’
The tool for estimating greenhouse gas emissions in transport-oriented development projects is designed to apply in any city or metropolitan area, and account for greenhouse gas emissions according to mobility patterns in these areas. In addition, the calculator estimates an emissions baseline of public and private transport in a city, and calculates their mitigation potential based on changes in mobility due to implementation of transport-oriented development projects.
The transport-oriented development Emission Reduction Calculator is based on the fundamental assumption that the built environment influences the way people inhabit transport themselves. Therefore, urban criteria used can affect mobility of people decisions to generate more sustainable mobility patterns, which in turn results in lower greenhouse gas emissions to the atmosphere. This webinar will go through the main overviews of the tool, followed by looking into how to use the calculator through a case study application in the Metropolitan Area of Guadalajara, Mexico.
The webinar will be held in Spanish. For more information about the webinar, click here. If you have any questions about this event, please contact the LEDS LAC Platform Secretariat, firstname.lastname@example.org.
