2:00 – 3:15pm Changing Course: Building a Low Carbon, Climate Resilient Transport Sector

Part I: A seat at the table: Transport as part of the solution

Countries in Asia and the Pacific are facing increasing risks to critical transport infrastructure due to rapid motorization, increased trade, urbanization and extreme weather events. At the same time, traditional transport investments continue to contribute to rising greenhouse gas emissions. This session will focus on building

low-carbon development in the transport sector, focussing on Asia and the Pacific.

Moderator: Bob Dobias, ADB

  • Schaeffer Pruess, VPKM, ADB – Opening remarks
  • Dr. Pachauri. TERI
  • Tariq Banuri UN-DESA
  • Ambassador Rae Kwon Chung, Republic of Korea
  • Jamie Leather, ADB – The Problem-The Solution

3:15-4:30pm Changing Course: Building a Low Carbon, Climate Resilient Transport Sector

Part II: Rethinking Transport: Mechanisms for Reducing Emissions

Transport is the fastest growing sector of emissions worldwide, and developing countries will account for more than 80 percent of this increase through 2030.

ADB’s Sustainable Transport Initiative is promoting the AVOID-SHIFT-IMPROVE approach to transport in the region. This session will focus on the following priorities for climate and transport: (i) measuring emissions; (ii) co-benefits of reducing emissions; and (iii) financing change in the transport sector.

Moderator: Jamie Leather, ADB
