Emissions calculation template for inland water transport


Developed by Dr. Ekbordin Winijkul from the Asian Institute of Technology (AIT) in 2020, this MS Excel emission calculation template for inland water transport can be used to assess the emission of inland water transport for other cities. Many major cities in Southeast Asia, and the world, are in major rivers and canals connecting to the coast. While many inland waterways are used for freight, not many cities are looking at passenger transport. Bangkok provides a good example in connecting road and waterway public transport. Inland waterways have the potential to alleviate road traffic and reduce overall emission from transport.

This tool was developed under the CCAC project Development of Emissions Inventory for Inland Water Transport in Bangkok, Thailand.
