Political Engagement and Impact
for Transport & Mobility
Ambition and Action

SLOCAT’s engagement in global processes in 2023-2024 will occur in the context of continued recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, ongoing geopolitical tensions with unprecedented social and economic impacts, and the increasing threats associated with climate change and other stresses on planetary systems.

2023 marks significant moments in global climate and sustainability processes, seeking to instigate a renewal of the UN’s efforts to address multiple escalating crises and ‘rescue’ the SDGs and the Paris Agreement. These efforts – which include summits on the SDGs and on Climate Ambition, taking place during the high-level week of the UN General Assembly in 2023, as well as the Summit of the Future in 2024 and a Biennial Summit on the Global Economy – will start setting the tone towards the future post-2030 global sustainability and climate agendas.

SLOCAT Engagement Plan 2023 - 2024

This Engagement Plan 2023-2024 for SLOCAT sets out areas of impact relevant towards a more robust SLOCAT engagement in the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and wider sustainability processes. This Plan delivers on the SLOCAT Strategy for Engagement in UNFCCC 2021-2025. The SLOCAT Strategic Development Plan 2023-2026 provides the overarching compass for our Partnership’s strategic objective & targets and areas of intervention.

This Engagement Plan 2023-2024 seeks to:

  • Enable enhanced multi-stakeholder, multi-modal structured dialogue and political impact.
  • Build capacity towards the next round of NDCs (and LTSs) for submission in 2025.
  • Advocate for the alignment of transport and mobility investments with the principles of the Paris Agreement and SDGs.
  • Synergise global sustainability and climate processes, across SLOCAT Areas of Intervention 2023-2026.
  • Leverage the work of SLOCAT Partners, as well as strategic alliances within the wider global transport community and beyond.
  • Support fundraising efforts for engagement in global climate and sustainability processes.

Areas of Impact

Structured multi-stakeholder dialogue and political impact on the intersection between climate, sustainability and transport

Capacity building towards the next round of NDCs (and LTSs) for submission in 2025

Alignment of transport and mobility investments with the principles of the Paris Agreement and SDGs

The SLOCAT Task Force on Transport Community Engagement in the UNFCCC was set up in 2021 and it will guide the delivery of this Plan. On the basis of SLOCAT’s nature as a partnership and building on the Task Force’s approaches since its establishment in 2021, SLOCAT Partners actively co-create, co-lead and co-deliver the products and activities to implement this Plan.
