Masahiko Iguchi and Hiroki Nakamura

Subjects: environment, climate change, environmental law, law - academic, energy law, environmental law


This chapter aims to reveal the current climate transport policy in the Asia-Pacific region. To this end, it analyses the following two case studies: 1) measures to shift demands of car travel to public transport; and 2) recent improvements of fuel economy regulations for passenger cars as well as tax incentives to diffuse low-carbon vehicles. It assesses how introduction of Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs) in the transport sector should be encouraged, and the meaning of a trend of regulatory convergence of fuel economy regulations among studied countries.
