Dzień Transportu - zapraszamy na spotkania i konferencje, organizowane w ramach COP24
In the framework of the 24th Session of the Conference of the Parties (COP) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), the European Commission’s CIVITAS Initiative and the Partnership on Sustainable, Low Carbon Transport (SLoCaT) on behalf of the Paris Process on Mobility and Climate (PPMC) are jointly organising the Transport Day 2018 “Urban mobility solutions to tackle climate change” that will take place on Thursday, 6 December 2018 in Katowice, Poland.
The event is hosted and supported by the City of Katowice. Transport is currently responsible for about one-fifth of global CO2 emissions and nearly a third of transport-related CO2 emissions originate from urban passenger transport. Transport also contributes at least half of the air pollution in cities, seriously affecting the health of its inhabitants. The Paris Agreement on Climate Change fully recognises the importance of non-State actors in implementing the agreement. City-level activities in the transport sector are becoming increasingly important, especially due to the multiple benefits of urban mobility action, reducing CO2 while at the same time improving air quality, tackling congestion, quality of life, traffic safety and improving public health.
The Transport Day 2018 will highlight the strong role of cities in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and improving air quality by implementing measures in the transport sector.
