'CO2 mitigation and the Indian transport sector' compares the growing demand for transport and contributions of the transport sector to emissions of carbon dioxide and to air pollution in the developed economies and the developing economies. It also reviews India's transport sector, with particular reference to its growing dependence on oil; estimates the amount of transport-related emissions of carbon dioxide, hydrocarbons, oxides of nitrogen, sulphur dioxide, and other pollutants including lead; and outlines possible ways of reducing the emissions of carbon dioxide and other pollutants.
