A Community of Practice (CoP) is a network of engaged experts and practitioners from a sector or working area who come together as a group to regularly engage in peer -to- peer learning to improve their personal and collective group knowledge. The network offers an alternative to conventional knowledge sharing platforms that usually feature top-down development assistance and policy adoption by providing an inclusive member experience. The activities of each CoP focus on peer learning, expert assistance and knowledge exchange through discussions, workshops, seminars, case studies etc. in topics found to be of relevance to the members. There are five CoPs under the Asia LEDS Partnership (ALP).
The Clean Mobility CoP addresses challenges and opportunities towards the implementation of low emissions development strategies (LEDS), including usage of clean fuels and electric mobility, in the transport sector. The Clean Mobility CoP supports governments in transitioning towards clean mobility by strengthening the operational aspects and efficiency of public transport policies and systems in the Asia region.
With an aim of promoting clean mobility, CoP is involved in the following activities
This study captures in detail the framework developed by Asia LEDS Partnership, with support of Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC), for Electric Mobility Policy in Sri Lanka. The framework for Electric Mobility Policy was developed by the ALP with an intent to guide the Ministry of Transport and Civil Aviation to promote electric mobility in Sri Lanka.
The Government of Sri Lanka had taken several initiatives to promote electric vehicles in the country, including the electric vehicle deployment, development of charging infrastructure, subsidy plan for Electric Vehicles, plans, and targets for procurement, etc. but a comprehensive long term vision for Electric Vehicle Policy was not in place. It was envisaged that a comprehensive policy document with legal backing will help to bring all aspects related to electric mobility together.
Upon discussions with government officials, responses from the consultation meetings held with various stakeholders, and secondary research, an electric mobility framework was developed by ALP in order to guide the Government of Sri Lanka with a set of procedures.
