IKI Integrating Electric 2&3 Wheelers

Kick-off workshop for the project “Integrating electric 2&3 wheelers“

On 8 November 2018, the University of Transport Technology (under the Ministry of Transport) organized a national workshop to launch the global IKI project “Integrating electric 2&3 wheelers into existing urban transport modes in developing and transnational countries”. The project focuses on electric two- and three-wheelers with 13 the objective of supporting Viet Nam to shift to low-emission transportation. The project partners – UN Environment (UNEP), the University of Transport Technology, with participation of the National Traffic Safety Committee (NTSC), the Ministry of Transport (Environmental Department, Department of Science and Technology, Viet Nam Register) and the Viet Nam Automobile Manufacturers Association (VAMA) will run the project until June 2020. The project is part of the global project “Transition to electric mobility”, which is implemented by UNEP in six countries: Kenya, Uganda, Ethiopia, the Philippines, Viet Nam, and Thailand.

During the kick-off workshop, Dr. Khuat Viet Hung, Vice Chairman of the National Traffic Safety Committee, said that pollution and energy security are global challenges.

The deployment of environmentally-friendly, non-fossil fuel transport is becoming more and more urgent, especially for developing countries like Viet Nam,”

he said. Mr. Bert Fabian, Program Officer, Air Quality and Mobility Unit, Economy Division, UN Environment, explained that the project aims at assessing the development of adequate policies to transition from internal combustion engines to electric mobility.
The shift to electric mobility comes with various co-benefits, such as reduced air pollution, improved national energy security, the creation of environmentally-friendly jobs, and a reduction in poverty and inequality.

To meet the project’s objectives, the project consortium will implement three main activities: Setting up an advisory group; developing an electric mobility national baseline setting; and develop policy recommendations.
