SLoCaT at COP15: Shaping the Future of Urban Transport

Place: Local Government Climate Lounge at COP15 (Hall C6, Bella Center) in Copenhagen

Time: Friday December 11, 2009 / 17:30 – 20:30

Contact: Daniel Bongardt, GTZ (daniel.bongardt[at]; +49 151 14073420)

Urban transport in developing countries is a major and fast growing source of GHG emissions. At the same time transport infrastructure and operations is vulnerable to climate change. The demand for mobility in developing country cities is expected to continue growing, to meet the need for economic and social development. To help ensure that such growth will be more sustainable, developing countries require international support to implement mitigation and adaptation measures.

The combined event of the Inter American Development Bank (IDB) and the Bridging the Gap Initiative, at the ICLEI climate lounge, will discuss the manner in which a new global climate agreement can assist the developing world in strengthening transport related adaptation and mitigation efforts in their cities. The event contributes to the Partnership of Sustainable, Low Carbon Transport, which was set up in Bangkok in September 2009.
