Sustainable Transport, Air Quality and Climate Change Conference

9 May 2011 @ 12:00 am

Dear friends and colleagues, 

The Clean Air Institute, together with the City of Rosario, GIZ, the Global Environmental Facility, the World Bank, and the Spanish Fund for Latin America are organizing the Sustainable Transport, Air Quality and Climate Change Conference in Rosario, Argentina.

This conference will focus on identifying opportunities for cooperation aimed at multilateral organizations, foundations, corporations and other entities to participate in the conference as well as programs that are underway in the region to improve urban mobility and combat climate change. This Conference is an interdisciplinary high level forum, with the participation of decision makers and professionals from Latin America and elsewhere. It aims to serve as a platform to discuss how cities are facing the challenge of introducing best practices of transport, while fighting climate change, reduce air pollution, noise reduction, and urban commuting.

The high-level meeting is envisaged in the context of the meeting of the Clean Air Initiative for Latin American & the Caribbean Cities (CAI-LAC), aiming at having leader cities from the region to gather and identify opportunities to transit to low carbon transportation systems in these cities. One of the expected outcomes is a Declaration on Sustainable Transport that together with the technical conference, is expected to deliver inputs to build and discuss avenues for collaboration on sustainable transport that could also influence Mayor’s meeting in South Africa and COP17, among other high-level processes.

Finally, all these activities will be framed in a commercial exhibit of state-of-the-art technologies and services that could catalyze investments in better transportation systems.
