Methodology Idea Note

Development ID#


Sectoral Scope

7. Transport

The proposed methodology provides procedures to estimate reduced GHG emissions from carpooling. Project activities establish carpooling digital platforms to connect drivers with passengers who are traveling in the same direction. GHG emission reductions are achieved as the carbon intensity of long-distance trips is reduced by optimizing car usage and incentivizing people to utilize modes of transportation already on the road. The proposed methodology is globally applicable.

Summary of Development:
