Sustainable transport solutions offer significant mitigation potential and are essential in meeting the climate goals. There is an urgent need for action towards zero emission mobility solutions. The mitigation potential of transport is further enhanced by moving towards compact cities, short distance trips and clean modes of transport. Improvements and actions towards increased resilience and adaptive capacity of key transport infrastructure, networks, and services are key to combating the impacts of climate change, including preparedness, protection, response and recovery.
