This evaluation of ‘The Global Fuel Economy Initiative Phase I and the Global Automotive Fuel Economy Campaign of the Partnership for Clean Fuels and Vehicles (PCFV) managing vehicle growth in 8 transitional countries’ focuses on the first phase of the Global Fuel Economy Initiative (GFEI) funded by the Global Environment Facility (GEF) and the European Commission and implemented by the UN Environment Transport Unit. The Global Fuel Economy Initiative’s global target is to “stabilize greenhouse gas emissions from the global light duty vehicles fleet through a 50 per cent improvement of vehicles fuel economy worldwide by 2050”. This evaluation focuses on phase 1 of the GFEI and covers the four pilot countries (Chile, Ethiopia, Kenya and Indonesia). The evaluation also covers second phase of the GFEI when assessing the extent of the Cleaner, More Efficient Vehicles Tool for development of national strategies that has been rolled out in Phase II additional countries.
