FRAMEWORK:
2. SUMMARY:
The project is part of a 10 year multi-sector program that seeks to contribute to improvements
in air quality in the MCMA through the reduction in the emission of criteria pollutants,
therefore reducing human exposure and improving health indicators for the large population
living in the area. The program focuses on reductions in emissions of particulate matter, ozone
precursors and emissions of greenhouse gases from mobile and fixed sources in the MCMA, of
which the transport sector has been shown to be a large contributor. The GEF proposal makes
part of the larger effort to achieve these reductions and harmonize said efforts with
investments that would mitigate greenhouse gases from the transport sector. The effort
supported by the proposed GEF operation will promote the introduction of climate-friendly
measures and technologies that would strengthen the sustainability of the transport sector.
These measures will include: a) harmonization of sector strategies on air quality issues and
Integrated Climate Action Plan for Transport; b) definition of an enabling environment to
facilitate the implementation of sustainable transport strategies; c) Field Test of climate-
friendly high capacity vehicles; d) technical assistance and training for incorporation of
climate change and air quality considerations in the design and analysis of transport strategies;
e) Public awareness and dissemination and f) project management. The global objective of the
program is to reduce the emission of GHG from passenger ground transport systems in large
metropolitan areas. In the longer term, the project is intended to promote a modal shift to a
sustainable, cleaner, less GHG emitting ground transport system for the MCMA. This shift
complemented with long-term promotion of public transportation and removal of related
barriers is expected to result in substantial global impacts.
