National Workshop on Low-emission Zones in Cities
About this event
Transportation is one of the fastest-growing sources of global emissions and the largest source of black carbon, which is particularly damaging to our health, straining our economic growth, and compromising our quality of life. Studies have shown that tail-pipe emissions from road transport result in significant increase in premature deaths in urban areas. Recent research suggests that both electric vehicles and compact cities anchored by transit, cycling, and walking are critical to achieving a 1.5°C warming scenario. Low-emission Zones (LEZs) are a high-impact conjunction of these two strategies to rapidly scale up transportation decarbonization. LEZs are geographically demarcated areas in cities where the movement of polluting vehicles is regulated, and a series of mobility interventions are put in place to further control and mitigate vehicular emissions and improve air quality. With this background, the International Council on Clean Transportation (ICCT), in collaboration with the NITI Aayog, is organising this Workshop.
