Accelerate the renovation of the cargo vehicle fleet with the aim to improve economic competitiveness and environmental performance of the freight transport sector.
Activities: (2015 - 2016)
This NAMA will support the implementation of a comprehensive policy of improvement of road-based freight in Colombia. The country has developed three main policies and a set of standards that are aimed at creating a more efficient sector. The NAMA seeks to complement this work with MRV development and implementation and complementary activities. The main mitigation actions of this NAMA are:
- Fuel and efficiency standards
- Fleet renovation
- Improvement of the organizational setup of the freight sector
- Improvement of logistics in the freight sector.
The NAMA seeks to enhance the development of the road-based freight sector playing a catalytic role in reducing emissions, developing an MRV and building capacity in the relevant stakeholders.
A pilot study has been carried out to build the planning and implementation capacity of the Ministry of Transport and the National Planning Department in Colombia, to structure NAMAs in the transportation sector, specifically in the field of freight transportation. It entailed drafting of a model national-level NAMA for green logistics, funded by the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB).
