The side event “Active transport in the new urban agenda: Research, city examples and opportunities for cooperation” will explore the current state of research on active transport (cycling and walking) in developing countries. In this event, the Global Report & Index on Non Motorized Transport developed by the UNEP and the University of Cape Town will be launched, presenting key results from the assessment of different NMT policies. Similarly, RuedaLAB will be promoting exchange of knowledge, tools and support between researchers focused on NMT, in order to encourage better practices among developing countries as well as promoting the development of a permanent platform focused on this exchange. Finally, Ciudad Humana will present the results of a study conducted on five cities in Latin America, which evaluates the state of cycling in each of them and illustrates the reasons for cycling, characterizes the population who cycle and evaluates the problems faced by cyclists in Latin America.
The event will take place at the conference venue, Casa de la Cultura Ecuatoriana, room MR20 on October 17 from 9:30am to 10:30am.
