The concluding chapter wraps up the case for SIDS to transition to low carbon transport.
Key Themes: SIDS – Transition – Barriers
Despite its apparent logic, traction, priority and financing for a low carbon transition of the SIDS transport sector has to date not been apparent. Yet, current and past initiatives show that successful and even profitable transitions to low carbon pathways are not necessarily difficult or unattainable. The barriers to transition are complex and multi-facetted, are poorly characterized or understood, and research in this field is still in the beginnings.
