Publication Year: 2017

Author(s): SLOCAT Partnership


The Islamic Development Bank (IsDB) and the Partnership on Sustainable, Low Carbon Transport (SLoCaT) released a new report on low carbon transport in IsDB member countries. The report shows major challenges and needs, potential transport policy activities and areas of required action. Islamic Development Bank (IsDB) member countries (MCs) face a number of challenges, including rapid urbanization, rising motorization rates, growing greenhouse gas emissions, climate change vulnerabilities, upstream capacity constraints and limited pipelines for infrastructure projects. Infrastructure stock in IsDB MCs is relatively low compared to population and increasing transport demand; therefore, more infrastructure for public transport, and especially urban rail systems, is a critical need. This report addresses the needs and challenges described through seven areas of analysis that is Transport drivers and demand; Transport emissions; Transport mitigation; Transport adaptation; Urban transport; Passenger and freight transport; Road safety.
