This summary of the transport dimension at COP24 is structured around the COP24 key messages of the Paris Process on Mobility and Climate (PPMC), a joint initiative of Movin' On by Michelin and the Partnership on Sustainable, Low Carbon Transport (SLoCaT) to focus efforts of the global transport community to achieve Paris targets. It was observed at COP24 that the Paris Rulebook has the potential to raise ambition in at least four ways: by resolving lingering political issues from Paris; by balancing needs for a binding guidance with flexible application to maximize participation and effectiveness; by enabling a dynamic agreement with strong review mechanisms and renewal timelines; and by addressing relevant issues in the current round of negotiations (IISD). Such breakthroughs would create a firmer foundation for robust policy action on sustainable transport and in supporting sectors.
