A Twofold Challenge; global and local
Climate change and its impact on air quality represent a major threat to the environment and public health. During the Paris COP21 in December 2015, nearly 200 countries signed a universal agreement to cut Greenhouse gases (GHG) and avoid the most dangerous effects of climate change. They committed themselves to keep the average global temperature rise below 2°C, which means a 70% GHG emissions reduction between 2010 and 2050*. In this climate-resilient global context, the International Association of Public Transport (UITP) supports climate change actions through its Declaration on Climate Leadership that demonstrates the sector support to double the market share of public transit by 2025.
