Project Manager for the Low Carbon Urban Transport Project (Individual Contractor- National)

A.      Project Title: Low Carbon Urban Transport Project

B.      Project Description 

In the Philippines, the transportation sector accounts for almost 37% of total national energy consumption, where road transport typically consumes about 80% of this share. More alarmingly, transportation is one of the fastest growing consumer of fossil fuels and the fastest growing sources of CO2 emissions. With rapid urbanization, energy consumption and CO2 emissions by urban transport are increasing rapidly. In the past decades, transport planning model adopted by the Philippines, as other Asian countries, prioritized the movement of cars and motorized vehicles to facilitate the growing demand for mobility of passengers and goods. So not surprisingly, urban and inter-regional transport is dependent primarily on road-based transportation such as buses, cars, motorcycles and tricycles, jeepneys and utility vehicles. The number of utility vehicles and cars, in particular, are increasing significantly with over 50% of the registered vehicles located in Metro Manila and adjacent regions. As such, there has been an increasing preference for private fossil fuel based motorized travel and less investments has been made for sustainable public transport and non-motorized transport like walking and cycling. With the exception of the use of Auto-LPG in taxis, there has been a marginal increase in the share of cleaner vehicles using alternative fuels such as CNG buses, Auto-LPG jeepneys, electric vehicles (jeepneys, tricycles in selected cities). There is still more work to be done to increase the efficiency of the urban public transport system considering the increase in number of people commuting regularly between Metro Manila and adjacent provinces. The expansion of rail-based mass transit systems have been at a slower pace and inter-modal transportation facilities such as integrated provincial bus terminals are still lacking where provincial buses are found to be mixed with city buses competing for road space in major arterial roads.

The proposed project has been structured around the following three components anticipated to support the achievement of the project objective, i.e. to create an enabling environment for the commercialization of low carbon urban transport systems (e.g. electric, hybrid vehicles and AGT systems) in the Philippines. The proposed project targets mass public transport vehicles such as electric and hybrid buses, e-jeepneys, etc. It does not include support to private cars.

The three components are as follows:

Component 1: Policy support for the promotion of low carbon modes of transport

Component 2: Awareness and institutional capacity development

Component 3: Investment in low carbon transport systems in the country
