Ministers of Environment from the 15 ECOWAS countries have adopted the first ever African regional fuel economy roadmap. The roadmap outlines measures for countries in the in West African region to transition to more fuel-efficient vehicles including electric mobility.
A workshop to discuss a new draft national electric mobility strategy was held in Mozambique on 7 November 2019. It was organized by the Ministry of Mineral Resources and Energy in collaboration with UNEP and was attended by government, academia and private sector players. The meeting follows GFEI’s previous stakeholder roundtables, which highlighted the need for policies and incentives to promote import of cleaner, low carbon vehicles, including electric vehicles. Mozambique has a large share of electricity from renewable sources and there is considerable potential to leverage on electric mobility as one of the sustainable mobility solutions.
