The Thai Government has pledged a 20% reduction in Greenhouse Gas emissions by 2030, one-third of which is attributed to the transport sector. Due to rapidly increasing GHG emissions from transport, the dramatic rise in air pollution in Thai cities and losses in productivity from congestion, the GIZ TRANSfer project supports the Thai Government in the creation of the Thai Clean Mobility Programme (TCMP).
To design the Thai Clean Mobility Programme (TCMP), a national programme that supports city administrations in their efforts to plan and implement Sustainable Urban Transport Projects, thereby reducing GHG emissions and air pollution stemming from transport in Thai cities
WP1: Study of a Congestion Charging Scheme for Bangkok
WP2: Support to the bus sector reform and fleet modernization in Bangkok
WP3: Setting up of a National SUT Fund to finance SUT projects in further Thai cities
In order to design the programme, the Thai Government has established three inter-ministerial working groups for each of the programme’s pillars:
Bus sector reform and modernization; and
Clean Transport Fund to work jointly on the detailed design.
GIZ supports the working groups with background studies.
