Project Aim

The project aims to create an evidence-based, comprehensive understanding of the different projects, policies and regulations around international connectivity, regional transport and urban mobility in Saudi Arabia, their contribution to energy demand and lowering GHGs and emissions, as well as setting the Kingdom on a net-zero pathway.

Key questions

  • What are the most effective technologies and infrastructure systems for achieving net-zero emissions in the transport sector?
  • What are the barriers and opportunities for the widespread adoption of electric vehicles, hydrogen-powered vehicles, and other low-carbon alternatives in various transport sectors?
  • How can governments incentivize the adoption of low-carbon transport options and discourage the use of fossil fuel-powered vehicles?
  • What are the social, economic, and equity implications of sustainable transport policies, and how can they be effectively addressed?
  • What are the best practices for urban planning and land use strategies that support sustainable transport and reduce dependence on private vehicles?
  • How can intelligent transportation systems and data analytics be utilized to optimize traffic flow, reduce congestion, and improve overall transport efficiency?
  • Carbon pricing: Carbon pricing mechanisms, such as carbon taxes or emissions trading schemes (cap-and-trade), put a price on carbon emissions associated with transportation activities.
  • Fuel taxes and levies: Governments can impose taxes or levies on fossil fuels used in transportation, such as gasoline and diesel.
  • Road pricing and congestion charges: Road pricing mechanisms involve charging vehicles for using certain roads or entering specific areas, particularly in congested urban areas.
