Can Asia successfully implement the Paris Agreement and the SDGs in the transport sector?Asia
Side Event by ADB

 

Information from the Asian Transport Outlook indicates that 560 million people in Asia lack access to an all-weather road within 2 km (SDG 9.1.1.) and an estimated 1.3 billion people in urban areas do not have access to modern, efficient public transport (SDG 11.2). At the same time CO2 emissions from transport in Asia are the fastest growing sector of emissions and are expected to continue to grow.  Is it possible to develop and implement transport policies in Asia that will develop the transport sector and at the same time decarbonize the transport sector?

Sustainable mobility: Renewable energy at its heart.
Side Event by REN21

 

Transport globally accounts for nearly one-third of total final energy demand and about one-quarter of the global energy-related CO2 emissions. For the sake of our health, environment, and climate we need to rethink solutions that support environmental, social, and economic sustainability while meeting the surging demand for mobility worldwide and ensuring access for all.

What should be the fuel mix of a sustainable transport systems? What role can renewables play? Should we look for global or local solutions to meet energy needs of the transport system? This panel will bring together experts from science, politics, transport, and energy sectors to discuss the potential of renewables in achieving sustainable transport.

On track: the economic footprint of railway investment
Side Event by UIC - International Union of Railways

 

Transport carbon emissions are set to increase by 60 percent in 2050 from 2015 levels, while they should decrease by over two thirds in a below 2°C scenario. A Paris-compliant sustainable mobility system will not be possible without the rail and public transport sectors. Considering the low energy and CO2 intensities of rail transport, shifting passenger and freight activity from more intensive modes such as private cars, trucks and airplanes to rail and public transport is a key strategy for net zero alignment. Investments in railways produce several multiple socioeconomic benefits such as job creation, urban revitalization, cleaner air, among many others that are not always easy to estimate and quantify. In this session, we hear from experts in the industry and in the finance sector on the return on investment in rail to society and how an enabling policy environment can get us there.

PtX in Transport: Going the last mile to reach net zero
Side Event by PtX Hub

 

In order to become truly climate neutral by 2050, we must reduce our dependence on fossil fuels and aim to operate free from emissions. Though the goal is to use 100% renewable energy, there are some industries that cannot yet directly electrify to become climate neutral. This is where Power-to-X comes into play. Power-to- X enables us to produce anything dependent on fossil fuels with renewable electricity and carbon. These sustainable and climate-neutral e-fuels can defossilise high emissions sectors. The PtX Hub works with partners in the public and private sector to leverage these potentials: to start the transformation towards climate-neutral industries and economies now, everywhere, in parallel, and fast. In this session, the PtX Hub invites experts to present on the sustainability potential of PtX and its use and benefits in the shipping and aviation industries.

Transport Emissions Disaggregation Tool (TEDiT) – a new perspective on emissions reduction potential in passenger transport sector
Side Event by ClimateAnalytics

 

Emissions from passenger transport in many eastern European countries have increased dramatically over the last two decades. In some cases, such as Poland, they have almost doubled since 2000. Under the EU law, member states have national, legally binding, emissions reduction targets for sectors including transport. The Transport Emissions Disaggregation Tool (TEDiT) aims to facilitate policy making by helping stakeholders to better understand the main drivers of emissions from this sector, and to identify policy gaps and overlaps. This approach allows for more effective and efficient transport policy that increases mobility options while decreasing emissions. The TEDiT can therefore be a useful tool in developing sustainable mobility plans and facilitating smart mobility management. At this online event, representatives of the “EUKI Beyond Best Practices in Passenger Transport”” project present the tool and selected good practices from Poland, Lithuania, and Romania.

Streets for Walking & CyclingAfrica
Workshop by ITDP and UNEP

English (with French translation)

Many cities across the African continent have a large percentage of walking and cycling as the main mode for trips. However, these cities often lack the infrastructure to make active mobility safe and comfortable. Apart from easing congestion, walking and cycling have significant health and economic benefits, they foster communities and let local businesses thrive. In order to shift from the current car-centric infrastructure designs, there is need to plan and finance roadmaps and strategies to actively prioritise non-motorised transport. Speakers will share their experience in developing and implenenting strategies for active mobility, among them infrastructure design and bikeshare programs, and discuss the challenges and opportunities of financing active mobility.

Establishing a Transport Authority: Team up to work with ParatransitAfrica
Workshop by MobiliseYourCity

French (with English translation)

In many African cities, it is the paratransit sector that keeps people moving. To shape transport for greater efficiency, city governments are building up formal public transport services. This requires public services in charge of regulating paratransit and formalized services to integrate and algin their activities. The workshop will provide insights on how to establish a public transport authority fit for managing formal transport services, and at the same time working with the paratransit sector to shape a city’s transportation services.

Going Beyond Quotas: Empowering Women in the Transport SectorAsia
Panel discussion

 

The field of transport has traditionally been viewed as a profession for men, despite transportation being a necessity for all and despite studies showing that women and men have different travel considerations and behaviours. There is a clear need to recognize and empower women—as users, workers, planners, decisionmakers—in the sector, to help ensure that our transport systems will be safer and better for everyone. However, this shift in perspective can be difficult to implement. In some instances, focus on safety has led to women-only public transport vehicles, or focus on diversity has led to gender quotas for panel and boards. This panel discussion will bring together experts and practitioners to discuss if these policies are truly beneficial and, if they are, how they can be successfully implemented without losing sight of the goal for equality.

In cooperation with Women on the Move, Women Mobilize Women, Women in Green Hydrogen and Women in Transport Leadership.

Helping cities to adapt to climate change: The tactical urbanism as a powerful tool to get it!Latin America

 

Although tactical urban planning facilitates participatory processes to socialize active mobility projects. This collaborative process seeks to recover and improve urban public spaces with the integration of both mitigation and adaptation measures to climate change. In particular, in terms of adaptation, tactical urban planning is quite useful for raising awareness among children and youth about the value and importance of having comfortable, safe and healthy public spaces and streets. This session seeks to share some results of cases of urban adaptation using methodologies that affect public health and safety, physical and psychological well-being, ecological connectivity, habitability and social organization, for an aesthetic improvement of the landscape, producing resilient, inclusive and recreational spaces.

Climate Change Hazard, Vulnerability, Risk and Criticality Assessment for Road Transport Infrastructure in South-AsiaAsia
Side Event by ADPC

 

Climate change related hazard, vulnerability and risk assessment is one of the first step in planning and developing climate resilient road transport infrastructure. Understanding of climate related hazards including climate extremes and climate induced hazards and their impacts on the road transport infrastructures is crucial in making decisions on climate change adaptation for the road transport sector. Understanding of the vulnerabilities in the road transport sector will further enable to strengthen adaptive capacities. This workshop presents an approach methodology for hazard, vulnerability, risk and criticality assessment for road transport infrastructure to support road agencies in South-Asia to formulate and implement climate change adaptation strategies for climate resilient road transport infrastructure.

Common Challenges, Joint Solutions – Multilateralism for climate action in transportBerlin
Keynote and Panel discussion (with Agora Verkehrswende)

 

Half a year after several transport initiatives have been initiated at COP 26 in Glasgow, we discuss how decarbonization partnerships of countries may help ramping up climate action in mobility. Join the event and witness panellists debate if joint partnerships and joint declarations are the key ingredient to successful decarbonization or if they are perhaps being used to gloss over lacking ambition.

Jennifer Lee Morgan, Special Envoy for International Climate Action at the Federal Foreign Office, is giving a keynote on the importance of multilateral cooperation to achieve climate targets in the transport sector.

  • Do we need a general, cross-sectoral climate club, a comprehensive transport alliance or sub-sectoral partnerships?
  • Do we need an exclusive club of frontrunners, or should we strive for an inclusive partnership open to all?
  • What role does the international transport community play in supporting multilateral state-led approaches?

PtX in Transport: Going the last mile to reach net zero
Side Event by PtX Hub

 

In order to become truly climate neutral by 2050, we must reduce our dependence on fossil fuels and aim to operate free from emissions. Though the goal is to use 100% renewable energy, there are some industries that cannot yet directly electrify to become climate neutral. This is where Power-to-X comes into play. Power-to- X enables us to produce anything dependent on fossil fuels with renewable electricity and carbon. These sustainable and climate-neutral e-fuels can defossilise high emissions sectors. The PtX Hub works with partners in the public and private sector to leverage these potentials: to start the transformation towards climate-neutral industries and economies now, everywhere, in parallel, and fast. In this session, the PtX Hub invites experts to present on the sustainability potential of PtX and its use and benefits in the shipping and aviation industries.
