COP28 Presidency Flagship Transport Event: Putting Transport and Mobility on Track for 1.5C Future
17:45 (GMT +4)
Al Waha Theater, Blue Zone
ITF Secretary-General Young Tae Kim speaks on this panel about decarbonising transport. A just transition to equitable, healthy, green, and resilient transport and mobility systems is central to socio-economic prosperity for people and the planet. To achieve this, systemic transformations in transport and mobility – linked to wider socio-economic transformations – are needed. The world experienced significant challenges and major crises in recent years, including the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic; this was followed by global economic downturn, further disruption of supply chains and the ongoing energy crisis. These wide-ranging crises have put the already-elusive progress made in the transport sector towards the Paris Agreement at increased risk. In a world of interconnected challenges, the opportunity lies in finding solutions for systemic transformation that cut across transport, sustainability and climate action. Integrated, inter-modal multi-dimensional solutions across passenger and freight transport remains critical to deliver on such cross-cutting solutions.
