How can the pathways to decarbonisation of transport be evaluated against the UK’s international climate ambitions?

Background

Development and climate change issues are key to ensuring a prosperous, equitable and sustainable future trading environment, particularly in the context of economic recovery. Further evidence should evaluate the impact of policy interventions on developing countries, and to consider the trade-off between global prosperity and green recovery agendas.
