Transport Track of the Pre-Summit Stakeholders’ Workday

4 May 2016 @ 12:00 am

The World Bank, the World Resources Institute, and the Paris Process on Mobility and Climate (PPMC) cordially organise the Transport Track of the Pre-Summit Stakeholders’ Workday on May 4 in Washington, DC at The Mayflower Hotel (State and East Ballrooms). Participants in this critical meeting will help lay the groundwork for the high-level discussions and agreements on sustainable mobility to be reached during the May 5–6 “Climate Action 2016” Summit, also in Washington, DC. 

At the May 4 Workday for the Transport Track, participants will hear and work with an unparalleled group of leaders from government, business, cities, and civil society as they tackle the future interaction of mobility and climate change. With the Paris agreements as well as the Sustainable Development Goals and the Lima-Paris Action Agenda as a backdrop, this meeting will discuss a global vision, a set of objectives, and a roadmap of action to transform the world’s mobility. The work achieved on May 4 will be brought forward to the sustainable mobility visioning and planning at the May 5–6 Climate Action 2016 summit.
