Webinar: From New York via Paris to Quito – Urban mobility on the global agendas

10 May 2016 @ 8:00 pm

Tackling transport challenges is crucial for sustainable urban development. Transforming urban transport systems towards being inclusive, safe, clean and low-carbon requires multiple and comprehensive action of a wide range of stakeholders. This has been recognized by the Paris Agreement and the NDC’s in which many countries dedicatedly focus on reducing greenhouse gas emissions of urban transport. The Agenda 2030 includes the target to improve the access to urban transport in the urban SDG 11 whereas other targets on air pollution, road safety, energy efficiency and greenhouse gas reduction require particular attention to urban transport. Further, the New Urban Agenda will outline the responsibilities and necessary steps to empower cities and local governments to realize their ambitions on improving urban mobility and reducing the negative impact of transport in urban areas.

In the webinar, Cornie Huizenga, Secretary General of the Sustainable Low Carbon Transport Partnership (SLoCaT) and Oliver Lah (Wuppertal Institute, Member of the Habitat III Policy Unit 9 on Urban Services and Technology) provide an overview on urban mobility in the global agendas as well as up-to-date insights into the current work of the Habitat III Policy Units whose work is decisive for shaping the New Urban Agenda.
