Ambitious action on Transport and Climate change is feasible now.
Following up the success of Transport Day 2014 in Lima, Peru, the Partnership on Sustainable, Low Carbon Transport (SLoCaT Partnership), together with the Michelin Challenge Bibendum (MCB) organized a Transport Day in December 2015, in the context of COP 21, to explore solutions towards a more sustainable mobility.
Sunday December 6th 2015, the event brought together over 400 persons representing the different modes of transport (passenger and freight transport; road, rail, water and air) as well as state and non-state actors.
Transport Day 2015 marked a milestone for sustainable mobility, and the ministers and CEOs in attendance demonstrated the commitment by countries and industry to urge and challenge to transport community to take the process further in incremental and disruptive steps.
The day was also the occasion to celebrate the progress made in integrating transport in the UNFCCC process:
a) INDCs make explicit reference to transport action
b) The Transport Initiatives associated with the SG Climate Summit and LPAA show that non-state actors are making effort to tackle climate change through the transport sector
