Côte d’Ivoire is committed to enhance its Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) under the Paris Agreement, which sets a greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction target of 28% by 2030 compared to a business-as-usual scenario. Through this project, Côte d'Ivoire aims to integrate actions to mitigate short-lived climate pollutant (SLCP) emissions from the transport sector into its revised NDC and reporting.
This project will advance several measures proposed in Côte d’Ivoire’s National SLCP Action Plan, including promoting cleaner diesel, renewing the vehicle fleet, and facilitating the transition to cleaner fuel for mass transportation. Effective implementation of these measures would allow Côte d’Ivoire to cut its greenhouse gas emissions by 19% by 2030, achieving more than half of the country’s commitment to climate change mitigation.
To realize the additional climate benefits of reducing SLCP and carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions together, this project will focus on soot-free bus technology solutions, particularly compressed natural gas (CNG) and electric buses, to fulfill commitments in Côte d’Ivoire’s National SCLP Action Plan and NDC.
