Green Transport Strategy (2018-2050)

Passed in 2018
This document sets the transport ministry's strategy to contribute to economic development, build a safe, efficient, reliable, affordable transport system, and thus drives the goals of the National Transport Master Plan 2050. It also complements the ministry's Environmental Implementation Plan 2015-2020

Objectives of the document include the following:
  • Enabling the transport sector to contribute its fair share to the national effort to combat climate change in a balanced fashion, taking into account the DoT and the sector’s primary responsibility of promoting the development of the efficient integrated transport systems to enable sustainable socio-economic development;
  • Promoting behavioral changes towards sustainable mobility alternatives through information, education and awareness raising;
  • Engaging the low carbon transition of the sector, to assist with the aligning and developing of policies which promote energy efficiency and emission control measures in all transport modes;
  • Minimising the adverse effects of transport activities on the environment, and
  • Facilitating the sector’s just transition to climate resilient transport system and infrastructure

  • The vision of the GTS is to substantially reduce GHG emissions and other environmental impacts from the transport sector by 5% by 2050.
