Transport Day 2015
The SLOCAT Partnership on Sustainable, Low Carbon Transport, together with Bridging the Gap Initiative (BtG Initiative), and the Michelin Challenge Bibendum (MCB) organised Transport Day 2015 on 6 December 2015, in the context of COP 21 in Paris, France.
Transport Day 2015 demonstrated the resolve of the transport sector to take action on Transport and Climate Change and celebrated the progress made in integrating transport in the UNFCCC process: (a) Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs) make explicit reference to transport action; and (b) the Transport Initiatives associated with the UN Secretary General’s Climate Summit and Lima Paris Action Agenda (LPAA) showed that non-State actors are making effort to tackle climate change through the transport sector.
Transport Day continued to be the premier community-building event for the sector in the annual COP. It brought together over 400 persons representing the different modes of transport as well as the different constituencies. Furthermore, since transport is a cross-cutting issue for sustainable development and economic growth, it reflects the readiness and commitment of transport stakeholders to engage with other sectors.
