Urban Mobility in Emerging Economies: Challenges and Approaches

Brussels | IRU participation


A Capacity4Change (C4C) event jointly organised by IRU, MobiliseYourCity (MYC) and GIZ Representation Brussels.

Cities are already growing at a rapid rate and are a focal points of human community. The achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals and the New Urban Agenda of the UN Habitat Process hinges on cities and related national and subnational actions. A sustainable and intelligent urban development is essential to take equal account of both human needs and environmental limits. One main area of action is the transport sector. It is considered to be globally the third largest emitter of greenhouse gases with half of the emissions arising from urban transport. Fuel-efficiency, reduction of emissions and a general increase of collective transport means are possible solutions to lower the environmental footprint of transport.

The event will be live streamed.


In this event, IRU and MobiliseYourCity will outline challenges and present innovative approaches for sustainable modes of transport and urban mobility.
