BACKGROUND

According to the International Energy Association, IEA and IPCC (2014) Summary for Policymakers, transport sector is deemed as one of the main contributors to greenhouse gas emissions that lead to climate change, accounting to 20%, with road transportation accounting for three-quarters of this share. In the Philippines, the latest GHG inventory (2020) by the Climate Change Commission shows that it remained as the third largest contributor of the country’s emission next to the energy and agricultural sectors.

ABOUT THE PROGRAMME

Since 2019, FNF Philippines has been working on introducing the concept of smart and sustainable cities anchored on innovation and active citizens’ participation through workshops, public events and, due to the pandemic, online events, in line with the German Climate Agenda. Now on its third year, we are looking to create an impact on decreasing carbon footprint with a more specific theme and a relatable one to our Filipino and German audiences: SMART AND PEOPLE-CENTERED MOBILITY.

It is an open call for research papers, projects and campaigns highlighting ways on how transport sector could be improved and how it could contribute to the reduction of carbon emissions and economic freedom.

Possible themes for collaboration include:

  • promotion of smart mobility initiatives in the Philippines
  • active and people-centered transport system
  • mobility rights
  • impacts of renewable energy sector to the transport industry (e.g. modernization of public transport)
  • data-driven transport policies
  • mitigating climate change in transport

These partnerships will gather experts and stakeholders in the field of transport and provide platforms for sectors allowing to raise public awareness on the topic. These will also lead to policy papers in aide of legislation and call to action for smarter mobility in the country.
