Expert Workshop on Prospects for National-Level Programmes and Funds for Sustainable Urban Transport in China
1 November 2012 @ 12:00 am
In the context of the urbanisation and motorisation in China there is a need for huge investment in creation, operation and maintenance of transport infrastructure as well transport services. This is a joint challenge for the national and local governments.
Some big cities in China have already started implementing sustainable transport infrastructure schemes as well as policies and measures. Also, the larger cities in China are increasingly engaged in researching good practices on sustainable transport financing and policy making. At the same time other (mostly smaller) cities still lack the capacity and financial resources to cope with motorization and urbanization in terms of a pathway focused on sustainable development.
The workshop on prospects for national-level programmes and funds for sustainable urban transport in China aims to gain a better understanding of current institutional and financial arrangements in China for (sustainable) urban transport and learn from international experiences. The key focus is the development of specific recommendations for the Chinese situation and funding practice, which take into account good international practice. The results will be presented to the Chinese government in early 2013.
