In-country support is a central part of GFEI’s approach to achieve its efficiency targets, and has had a significant impact on overall fuel economy.

GFEI provides ongoing support to around 70 developing countries to shape fuel economy policies and measures, thanks to funding from the European Commission, Global Environment Facility (GEF), UN Environment and FIA Foundation. A number of G20 and OECD countries, including the EU and the US, also receive expert fuel economy policy analysis and advice.

Every country faces different challenges in terms of the size and mix of their vehicle fleets and GFEI presents a range of tailored options to policymakers following a detailed assessment. The process to support each country follows a common series: consultation and discussion; evidence-based approaches; best practice benchmarking; and evaluation.

The GFEI toolkit is a resource to help countries create a baseline analysis of their vehicle fleet, understand the potential impact of improved vehicle fuel economy, and develop region specific policies.

GFEI Partners and their Activities

GFEI is a network of partners. The in-country support we provide countries is delivered by GFEI partners, regional partners and specific national partners. This network of experts shares experiences and best practice, including at our annual training event.
