The Great Transport Divide: Harnessing Collective Efforts for Electric Vehicles in the Global South
Road transport is responsible for 15% of CO2 emissions worldwide. As we increase the speed of transport electrification, we must make sure the switch to EVs happens globally and the benefits to air quality and health are distributed equally. Looking to Latin America and India, it’s clear that the switch presents both challenges and opportunities. Collaboration between governments and the private sector will be critical to the Global South’s electrification journey.
In this session, we will explore:
- How are governments and private companies coming together to bridge the divide between North and South?
- What can we learn from pioneering work already taking place across Latin America and India?
- How can we avoid repeating injustices and ensure a just transition to EVs across the globe?
