Workshop: Optimizing Transport's Contribution to Global Processes

May 4, 2018, 2:00pm-5:30pm
GIZ Bonn offices, Friedrich-Ebert-Allee 40, Saal A - BF 20045Bonn, Germany

Organized By

Objective: Identify the most effective strategies to maximise the contribution of the transport sector to the global climate processes in the next 18 months.

Concept: An interactive workshop-style event to discuss and plan the engagement of the transport sector in the climate processes 2018/2019. This event will build upon the COP23 Transport Analysis Workshop hosted by GIZ in Bonn in December 2017 and aims to focus transport sector strategies and interventions in the 2018 climate and development processes.

This event aims to attract both regular and novel participants in discussions on transport and climate change (including partners in related sectors). SLoCaT will reach out to all organizations that have made transport related submissions to the Talanoa Dialogue and invite them to be an active part of the event. Prior to the event SLoCaT will publish an assessment of these transport related submissions.
