Asia Clean Mobility Community of Practice
The Asia LEDS Partnership have announced the launch of its community of practice on transport-clean mobility. Expressions of interest to participate in the community of practice are now open.
Formulating and deploying low emission development strategies to meet clean transport objectives can be a complex process, involving integrated approaches that include short and long term analysis of technical, socioeconomic, financial and often political factors. Gaps in available expertise to address these requirements can constrain strategy development and implementation at the sectoral level. The clean mobility community of practice will address these shortcomings by facilitating deeper technical collaboration and peer to peer collaboration on the following topics:
- Cleaner mobility with a focus on using clean fuels, electric mobility, technology and creating supportive infrastructure
- Policy and regulatory frameworks for public transport and involving the private sector
In 2018, the community of practice will explore these topics through discussions, seminars, case studies and more. Please read the concept note for additional information.
The Asia LEDS Partnership invites LEDS GP members to nominate suitable persons from national and subnational governments, regulators, utilities, line ministries, transport operators, technical/training institutions and experts from the transport sector.
Session 1: Enabling a transition to electric mobility in public transport fleets: policies and enabling environment (June 2018)
Participating countries: Indonesia, Malaysia, Papua New Guinea, Philippines, Singapore, Vietnam,
This online session focused on buses as a mode of public transport. It helped the participants to understand the benefits of deploying electric buses, along with ideas to formulate productive policies with a special mention of incentives, charging equipment, operational hurdles and cost of buses.
Session 2: Enabling a transition to electric mobility in Intermediate Public Transport fleets: Policies and Enabling Environment (September 2018)
This session highlights the policy incentives, regulations, challenges, outlook and way forward for intermediate public transport in Asian countries. Examples of intermediate public transport fleets include Auto-rickshaws (India), Jeepneys (Philippines) and Tuktuks (Thailand). The session also shared insights from regional countries providing a framework by which these modes of transportation can be optimized and transitioned to cleaner energy sources.
