This is one in a series of briefing papers produced by WWF South Africa’s Low-Carbon Frameworks programme, which explores the shift to a low-carbon economy. We seek solutions for emitting fewer greenhouse gas emissions and enabling a flourishing South Africa, which delivers developmental outcomes and social equity.

The programme includes a focus on transport. WWF’s transport project aims to provide a platform, expertise and interactive modelling to support labour, business and government in engaging with the challenges implicit in the low-carbon transition. Consideration will be given to the three tiers of interventions which will be required to effect the transition of this sector, being to REDUCE movement of goods and people, SHIFT to low-carbon modes of transport, from private to public, from road to rail, and IMPROVE mobility services, and energy and fuel efficiency.
