Morning Session: Communications and Public Involvement in Urban Transport (African, Asian and Latin American Cases)
Major urban transport programs and projects are more likely to be successful if the public is knowledgeable and engaged in the design, implementation and evaluation stage. But public engagement can also be scary and risky. The aim of the morning session is to share experience regarding approaches to constructive public involvement and communications in urban transport planning and projects. Speakers from both developing and developed countries and cities will cover approaches used to improve inclusion and transparency, and maximize their beneficial effect. Experience with difficulties and challenges will also be shared.
