Transport Thematic Day at COP23

The Transport Thematic Day will be held on Saturday, 11 November. The event is organised by the Marrakech Partnership on Global Climate Action (MP-GCA) transport content group consisting of ITF, PPMC, UIC and UITP. ITF staff involvement includes:

10:00-11:00 | Bonn Zone | Room 8 | ITF/PPMC/UITP/UIC
Opening Session: Setting the Scene and Achieving Future Goals
The Opening Session will focus on the need to scale up action and ambition on transport and climate change.
With ITF Secretary-General Young Tae Kim

11:30-12:45 | Bonn Zone | Room 8 | ITF/PPMC/UITP/UIC
Policy Making and Target Setting for the Transport Sector
The goals of the Paris Agreement cannot be reached without significant reductions in transport emissions under current projections of growing transport demand. Setting emission reduction targets is the first step to a decarbonising transport development pathway.
With Mary Crass, Head of Institutional Relations and Summit at ITF (Moderator)

13:45-15:00 | Bonn Zone | Room 8 | ITF/PPMC/UITP/UIC
Shifting Personal Mobility through Innovations in Transport Technologies, Systems and Integrated Planning
Reducing carbon emissions in urban transport requires a mix of policies and measures that will target changes in both technologies and mobility patterns. Recent trends across the world have shown that travel behaviour could be shifted to depend less on personal mobility through innovations in technology, urban planning, public transport services, and sustainable transport systems. 

15:00-16:15 | Bonn Zone | Room 8 | ITF/PPMC/UITP/UIC
Reducing Maritime Transport GHG Emissions: Decarbonising Supply Chains
This event will provide an overview of efforts to reduce international and domestic maritime transport emissions. Industry experts will show how maritime transport can contribute to the overall GHG reduction effort and decarbonise supply chains.
With Olaf Merk, ITF shipping and ports expert

16:45-18:15 | Bonn Zone | UNDESA and The World Bank Group
The Role of Sustainable Mobility in a Changing Climate
The event will use the new Global Mobility Report (GMR) as the backdrop for a high-level discussion on how we can achieve the four global goals that define sustainable mobility: universal access, efficiency, safety and green mobility). The outcome of this panel discussion will feed into the global roadmap of actions to achieving sustainable mobility, currently under preparation by the Sustainable Mobility for All (SuM4AII) initiative.
