Transport Day 2013

Transport Day took place on 17 November 2013, in Warsaw, Poland, alongside the nineteenth Conference of the Parties (COP 19) to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). The event was supported by the Bridging the Gap initiative (BtG) and the Partnership on Sustainable, Low Carbon Transport (SLoCaT), with a focus on rethinking transport and climate change.

During the morning, participants attended a panel discussion on sustainable transport as a key building block of sustainable low-carbon development, then dispersed into four break-up groups on the mitigation potential of the transport sector, policy making on sustainable, low carbon transport in the developing world, ensuring effective nationally appropriate mitigation actions (NAMAs) for transport, and integrating adaptation in transport policies.

During the afternoon, participants continued in their break-out sessions, with the addition of a discussion on sustainable, low-carbon transport financing, and a roundtable panel reporting back on these discussions. This was followed by a panel discussion on developing a message to the UNFCCC negotiators on sustainable, low-carbon transport. The day concluded with the adoption of the Warsaw Statement on Low Carbon Transport and Sustainable Development, which was followed by an evening reception.
