Keynote speakers at the symposium include Dr.
of Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC); Dr.
Professor at the Graduate School of Policy Science at
Transport Energy Specialist, Energy Technology Policy Division, International
Energy Agency, OECD.
The symposium speakers agree that reducing worldwide CO2 emissions from
the transport sector is crucial in order to significantly reduce global
greenhouse gas emissions. It is, however, especially difficult for developing
countries to take actions to reduce transport emissions, due to these
countries’ needs in pursuing sustainable social and economic development.
Even for developed countries, it is difficult to change the energy
consumption habits of the public.
global reduction targets of CO2 emission from the transport sector both in
developed and in developing countries will be discussed.
