Green Freight India

On-going
01 Jan 2019 to 30 Apr 2024

Description

India’s freight transport sector offers enormous potential for climate mitigation and sustainable economic development by increasing its efficiency, shifting road-based freight to railways and ships, and promoting modern technologies. Therefore, the project aims to introduce appropriate strategies, technical solutions, and approaches to develop competencies to coordinate and implement the National Integrated Logistics Plan (NILP). The project advises its partner ministry on setting up coordination and monitoring mechanisms for the NILP. It also supports selected national authorities in the development of climate-friendly standards and regulations as part of the NILP Action Plans. Promising approaches are tested in a selected logistics corridor. To ensure sustainable implementation, the project strengthens the resources and competencies of federal authorities as well as private logistics contractors and truck drivers.
