Accelerating the shift to electric mobility: A new GEF supported Global Electric Mobility Programme 

About the event

For the transport sector to align with the Paris Agreement, all transport modes will need to be zero carbon by 2050. By 2030, 75% of all new sales of light duty vehicles in developed markets will have to be electric, including 100% of all new buses. To make this possible, the rate of adoption of electric vehicles will need to increase twelve times over the next decade. The GEF, UNEP, IEA and partners have teamed up to accelerate this key transition. This panel will discuss the importance of a global switch to zero emissions vehicles to meet the Paris goals, introducing the new GEF Global Electric Mobility Program.
