  • How could progress with the Quito Action Plan be tracked/monitored – key indicators?
  • How to support capacity building / institutional strengthening?
  • How to strengthen the link with the developing post COP21 Global Climate Action Agenda?
16:45 – 17:45 How to strengthen and scale up action on urban mobility through the New Urban Agenda. The structure and content of a Quito Action Plan on Urban Mobility? (Plenary panel session).
