The Chile Climate Change Conference, which features the 25th session of the Conference of the Parties (COP25), started today and will be held until 13 December 2019 in Madrid, Spain. The Paris Process on Mobility and Climate (PPMC), a joint initiative by the SLoCaT Partnership on Sustainable, Low Carbon Transport (SLoCaT) and Movin’On, actively engages the global transport community at COP25 and is working closely with the Chilean Presidency to advance safe, efficient, affordable and low carbon mobility.
Memo by the SLoCaT Partnership Secretariat – November 2019
A. Why is this conference important? Why SLoCaT?
Dear Colleagues and Partners
The Government of Chile has made the difficult decision not to host COP25 and the Asia-Pacific Economic Commission Forum in view of the complex situation that the country is undergoing.
Sustainable mobility could connect 1 billion people, increase GDP by 2.6 trillion, cut 1.8 gigatons of CO2
On the occasion of the United Nations Secretary-General Climate Action Summit, for the first time, over 100 organisations come together in a bold commitment to decarbonise transport. Action towards Climate-friendly Transport (ACT) is the largest global coalition aiming to catalyse transport as an enabler of sustainable development in line with the 2030 Agenda and the Paris Agreement.
