SuM4All at COP26: Electromobility – An Opportunity for ALL Countries or only a FEW?

November 3, 2021 @ 2:00 pm 3:30 pm CET

As we gear up toward COP26, declarations and commitments from high-income countries abound on net-zero targets, zero-emission vehicles (ZEVs), and with them, a vision about the right way to decarbonize the transport sector.   

The Global North largely catalysed this narrative, which portrays electric transportation as an opportunity waiting to be seized by all countries, but is that premise true only for a few?   

On the framework of COP26, Sustainable Mobility for All (SuM4All) brought an important contribution to this debate with a side event held on 3 November to discuss its recently released paper, “Electromobility in the Global South: An Equitable Transition toward Road Passenger Transport Decarbonization.” This paper was developed by the Sustainable Mobility for All partnership, with the UK Foreign Commonwealth Development Office (FCDO) and the Climate Compatible Growth (CCG) Programme for COP26.
