SUTP Module 5d – The CDM in the transport sector
Since the advent of Kyoto Protocol in 2005, many countries, both developed and developing, have embraced the concept of Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) in order to reduce their carbon emissions. This module discusses the viability of sustainable transport projects to be qualified under the CDM mechanism which will thereby benefit from GHG offset sales. The module also presents a case study on BogotÃ¡â€™s BRT system TransMilenio, the first officially registered CDM project for transport.
