Program Outline


The program of Transport Day 2014 will be a combination of plenaries with breakout sessions. The morning plenary will focus on how transport can tackle climate change through the global bodies and process like UNFCCC negotiations, IPCC reports and Sustainable Development Goals. The plenary will be followed by the four breakout sessions on:

  1. Mitigation Potential of Transport – linked to the ongoing discussions on Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs);

  3. Financing – linked to discussions on Green Climate Fund and other Climate Finance modalities;
  4. Adaptation – linked to discussions on acceleration of climate change adaptation;
In the afternoon the program will focus on how the transport commitments at the Secretary General’s Climate Summit can be linked with the UNFCCC negotiation process. The plenary discussion will be followed by a keynote address from an internationally recognized climate change expert. In the closing session, the participants will discuss how we can take the negotiations in Lima to a next level at the COP21 in Paris in 2015.
