Data, Indicators & MRVTraining & Capacity Building

Hands–on Training for Sustainable Transport Indicators in Malaysia

Under the 11th Malaysian Plan, Malaysia’s Economic Planning Unit (EPU), with support from UNDP, initiated a preliminary study on Demand Side Management, covering the whole spectrum of the energy sector including transportation. As part of this study, UNDP along with TCC, jointly organised a two-day training on 24-25 January 2017 for a better understanding of data requirements and key indicators essential for Measuring, Reporting, and Verification (MRV). The training also provided insights of best practices as well as common mistakes. The instructor and consultant to GIZ, Mr. Sudhir Gota, provided a guided hands-on course on basic emission calculation and demonstrated various transport modelling tools to the participants.

The training is also intended to complement the Kuala Lumpur Transport Strategic Plan (KLTSP) 2016-2025 monitoring framework, and to provide a harmonised approach for indicators on energy and GHG emissions in the transport sector in Malaysia. This is in line with TCC’s objective to support the development of regional sustainable transport indicators and guidelines to facilitate the compilation of transport data in order to assess the performance of transportation systems on ASEAN level.
