In Asian cities, rapid urbanization and the rising incomes are leading to a doubling of the motor fleet every 5-7 years. The uncontrolled growth in motorized traffic is resulting in a rapid growth in carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. Transport presently contributes a quarter of the world's energy-related CO2 emissions and this share is expected to grow. The developing member countries (DMCs) across the region are currently developing strategies to address the sector's emissions. However, these are in their early stages. Hence, there is a growing and urgent need for ADB to increase support for sustainable low carbon transport in Asian cities and countries.
