Publication Information

This report was prepared by the South Pacific Geoscience Commission and focused on Samoa. Efficient and effective energy use in the transport sector is a measure of a country’s attainment of sustainable development. Samoa is totally dependent on imported fossil fuels for transport. This reliance on fossil fuels is likely to increase. This country report for Samoa is a ‘snapshot’ of the current situation regarding the transport sector. It forms part of a larger ‘Promotion of Environmentally Sustainable Transport in the Pacific’ (PESTRAN) project designed to facilitate energy efficiency improvements in the land transportation sector. The PESTRAN project will be an integrated and sustainable programme that will facilitate energy efficiency improvements in land transportation of the PICs to help prevent increased and wasteful fossil fuel consumption. This report also identifies priority land transport sector issues and concerns that need to be further addressed.
