This event will examine how nations have and should set INDCs on the basis of
justice, the role of contrarian obstruction, and recommend a mechanism
needed to assure that nations set INDCs on the basis of their fair share of safe
global emissions.

Once countries have agreed on INDCs and mitigation targets in December, the
next big challenge is to put in place policies and measures that satisfy these
ambitions. Policy makers/ implementers will discuss success factors for moving
from concept to implementation in low carbon transport policies.

Speakers include representatives from national and
municipal transport authorities implementing
mitigation activities in the transport sector, transportNAMA developers, international financing
organizations, NGOs and donors engaged in low carbon
transport

Business will
-discuss implications for domestic & global outcomes from policy + market
changes, e.g. in trade & investment, from INDCs
-present experiences w/business engagement in developing INDCs recommend ways to involve business in assessment/improvement

Business representatives from developed and
developing nations, academics, and respondents from
national delegations

We reflect on the interactions between INDCs and development outcomes.
The experiences of building INDCs within MAPS, China & India revealed the
complexity of decarbonisation, integrating multiple objectives and facing
implementation in developing countries. An agenda for further work is
proposed.
