The transport sector plays a major role in achieving sustainability and climate protection goals. For climate targets to be met, a rapid and comprehensive transformation of transport demand is essential. Increasingly, the question arises as to what role sufficiency strategies can play in changing transport demand. So far, this is still unclear, and sufficiency strategies are of little importance in transport policy.
Against this background, DLR and ConPolicy were commissioned by the Federal Environment Agency to carry out the project "Sufficiency in Transport". The aim of this project is to explore the potential for sufficiency strategies in the transport sector and to develop ways to successfully communicate sufficiency mobility habits. The project started in October 2020 and will be completed in February 2023.
