The Need for Sustainable Urban Mobility


Learn more about innovative public transport solutions from around the globe at the  The Need for Sustainable Urban Mobility event.

Cities are engines of socio-economic development. Yet, increasing populations create challenging situations for urban transport in many developing and emerging economies. Traffic congestion has become a recurrent and severe problem in many cities with a negative impact on the life of urban dwellers through negative externalities such as traffic congestion, noise and accidents. There is need for a paradigm shift towards more sustainable transport systems.

The conventional approach to address urban transport has been to build more roads – that are being overwhelmed by increased traffic soon after they are built. There are increasing opportunities to move a new level for mobility.

The objective of this side event is to discuss sustainable and innovative urban mobility solutions and facilitate exchange of participants with like-minded. Further, the side event will review the lessons learnt from the first Academy but will also seek collaboration and partnership for organizing future Academies with a broader range of supporting partners.
