Good Practice: Assessment of TDM policies and their GHG impacts in Beijing and other chinese cities

The transport demand management (TDM) project, carried out by Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) and the Transportation Research Centre helped the Beijing Municipal Commission for Transportation (BMCT) define TDM policies and measures that had a potential to reduce GHG emissions and address transportation challenges in Beijing and other Chinese cities. The project developed a methodology to assess scenarios on likely impacts of TDM policies, defined methodologies to estimate GHG emissions and reductions, and developed a tool for Chinese cities to estimate these.
