Sustainable Mobility Requires a New Policy Approach Today (Virtual Knowledge Exchange)

The contribution of transport to economic development and human capital is undeniable. Our lives and livelihoods depend on mobility that transport enables. This dynamic has become even more clear as mobility systems were temporarily ground to a halt by the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. The current global mobility system is unsustainable and the demand for moving people and goods only continues to rise. The imperative for action in transport has never been greater, but the traditional approach of working on a project-by-project basis proved ineffective in delivering the systemic changes in the transport systems needed globally. Furthermore, policy-making in transport has fallen short in terms of breadth and depth to strategically assess, measure, coordinate, and ultimately deliver sustainable mobility to its citizens and affected stakeholders. Is there a better way to design transport policy? Under the Sustainable Mobility for All (SuM4All) partnership a coalition of more than 50 international organizations embarked on that journey in 2017 and developed a data-driven set of new tools to change transport policy. This four-module virtual knowledge exchange event will cover: (1) key dynamics and challenges that impose a new approach in transport and adaptive tools, (2) framing the ambition of sustainable mobility, and measuring country performances on mobility, using the Global Tracking Framework for transport; (3) generating a tailored action plan with the most impactful policy measures; and finally (4) the experience of testing and implementing this approach with lessons learned and what the future holds for collaboration and engagement at the country level. Key topics to be explored include sustainable mobility and transport with a focus on development in sustainable development, data & technology, open government and citizen engagement, and equity and inclusion.

Target Audience

This course is designed for participants who are interested in a new approach to decision-making in transport that is aligned with the SDGs and Paris Climate ambition. It does not require transportation sector expertise. ● Transport policy makers, regional and country-specific transport specialists, and all stakeholders with a vested interest in a more holistic and collaborative approach to transport policy. ● Officials within ministries and banks responsible for transport, gender, governance, finance, and urban and rural development. Industry stakeholders, including private sector partners and staff from multilateral development banks who wish to gain additional tools and understand opportunities for making policy and investment decisions that will advance collective aims and progress toward SDGs.

Hello, It would be helpful to learn more about sustainable mobility. Our group is working on a pre-combustion component on any type of internal combustion engines which will significantly reduce Carbon emission (CO2) along with Nox and Sox. It will also help increase energy efficiency of the engine thereby offering faster cooling of the a/c and reduce the torque. Therefore feel that this course will immensely help in strategising the approach.

This really needed at a time as this when top down approaches to governance no longer provide the anticipated solutions to urban issues including transportation. I am looking forward to learning the newly developed approaches that could better transform transportation matters in developing nations.

Almost all global transport organizations have introduced global tracking systems. Industries depend on the arrival of spare parts, tools, instruments, etc. In addition to tracking, we need quick delivery to produce needed materials. We can use Blockchain to monitor the safe handling of consignments and delivery. The governments have to create policy in for awarding compensations for the loss of confinements.
