ADB Transport Forum: Changing Course – Pathways to Sustainable Transport
25 May 2010 @ 12:00 am
The transport sector needs to Change Course in order to ensure sustainable growth in the Asia Pacific region. It is now clear that a business as usual scenario is unsustainable and the need to change and move along a different growth pathway is driven by a range of economic, social and environmental challenges, including climate change, congestion, and the provision of basic mobility.
Ministers, key decision makers from industry, top researchers and representatives of civil society from more than 30 countries will come together at the 2010 ADB Transport Forum in Manila, Philippines where they will focus on Changing Course for the transport sector.
