Transportation is a major contributor to climate change, accounting for one-fifth of global carbon dioxide emissions, with three-quarters of this coming from road transport.
“eWAKA”, a platform dedicated to serving commuter and commercial electric micro-mobility fleets, believes that electric cargo bikes are the best way to reduce carbon emissions in cities like Nairobi. They believe that electric micromobility is the key to reducing traffic congestion, air pollution, and noise pollution.

Electric vehicles (EVs) are a vital part of reducing greenhouse gas emissions from transportation, but how much they can help depends on how clean the electricity grid is. EVs are essential for meeting global climate goals and are featured prominently in emissions reduction plans that limit warming to well below 2 degrees Celsius or 1.5 degrees Celsius, as outlined in the Paris Agreement.
