Sustainable Urban Mobility and Climate Change – Connective Cities Workshop, Bangkok 2016
Reducing Are Pollution by Climate-Friendly Means of Urban Transport – 27-29 September 2016 in Bangkok, Thailand
Transport and the resulting greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are a major contributor to climate change. Therefore, the transport sector – as the second largest emitter after electricity and heat production – provides an outstanding opportunity to address climate change. Low-carbon transport policies can foster, among others, better air quality, improved accessibility and mobility, road safety, decreased traffic noise as well as energy efficiency.
The workshop aims to strengthen the exchange of experiences among Asian cities as well as with experiences from Germany, to identify good practice examples from the region and from Germany that can be adapted to other cities and regions around the world, to provide peer-to-peer advisory services for ongoing challenges in a creative and interactive workshop environment as well as to prepare the planning of joint projects which address sustainable urban mobility.
