Cities reduce crashes and improve health by implementing actions that favor public transit, non-motorized transportation and sustainable urban development. In this Rio +20 side event we will discuss with a range of organization how avoiding motorized travel through the integration of sustainable land use and transport planning – increasing accessibility, saving lives and protecting the environment. We will also analyze the vital importance of shifting to safer, healthier and more environmentally friendly modes, such as public and non-motorized transport. Finally, we will take a look at ways to improve safe systems through designs and operations.
As a side event at Rio+20, EMBARQ will convene approximately 50 local and international experts for a roundtable discussion and reception. This will be an opportunity to engage with key stakeholders and communicate our engagement strategy for governments, development banks, and civil society to influence the Rio outcomes. The roundtable discussion will also address the implications of Rio+20, in particular how to bridge the gap between international discussions or agreements and the needs and capacities of local governments. We will discuss potential actions the private sector, development banks, and governments can take.
This Side Event will provide an expert view from leading practitioners from the field of sustainable mobility in developed countries and emerging economies, and will conclude with proposals on including this topic in the outcome document of Rio+20. The Side Event will focus on sustainable transport in cities, to correspond to the section on cities in the Zero Draft document. Partners are from the global public transport sector (metro, bus, railways), project specialists and research institutes. This Side Event offers delegates the opportunity to cover all the key issues of sustainable mobility in cities in one single event.
On April 25-26, 2012, the city of León, Mexico will host the Second Annual SIBRT Congress of Best Practices in Latin America.
