Berlin High-Level Dialogue on Implementing Rio+20 Decisions on Sustainable Cities and Transport

19 June 2013 @ 12:00 am

The Berlin High-level Dialogue on Implementing Rio+20 Decisions on Sustainable Cities and Urban Transport will coincide with the first anniversary of the Rio+20 Conference. The Berlin High-level Dialogue will also coincide with the 2013 Global Forum on Human Settlements and Awards Ceremony (GFHS).

The main objectives of the dialogue are to (a) highlight proven sustainable urban planning and transport policies and measures, (b) identify good and best practices in this regard, and (c) facilitate capacity building through national and international exchanges of information and experiences among relevant practitioners, experts and policy makers, in particular from developing countries. Whereas the High-level Dialogue is not a formal inter-governmental meeting, it provides a forum for national, regional and global information exchange and consultations among stakeholders, experts and decision makers.

In the Berlin High-level Dialogue, the Partnership on Sustainable, Low Carbon Transport (SLoCaT) will launch its report “Sustainable Transport one year after Rio+20” including an update on the implementation of the Rio+20 Voluntary Commitments.  The report will focus on the current status of the 17 voluntary commitments from the transport sector and explain where sustainable transport stands in the post-2015 Development Agenda.  The report will be presented on June 20th by Mr. Nikhil Seth, Director Sustainable Development Division, United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UN-DESA).
