Experts of the Green InterTraffic project are invited to participate in the plenary session of the UNECE Inland Transport Committee, which will be held on February 25, 2020 in Geneva.
The session will be devoted to the theme "Environmental challenges to sustainable inland transport".
Five years after the signing of the Paris Climate Agreement and the adoption of the Sustainable Development Goals by the United Nations General Assembly, climate change and environmental challenges remain a global challenge whose negative impacts can be felt in every region in the world.
Inland transport contributes to, and is disrupted by, climate change caused in part by the sector’s significant carbon footprint. The process of making transport more environmentally friendly and energy efficient can lead to significant reductions on the sector’s carbon emissions, thereby mitigating the more pernicious effects of climate change and reducing the likelihood of climate change-related transport disruptions.
It is planned that the experts of the Green InterTraffic project will present developments on the Green Roadmap aimed at expanding the use of vehicles running on alternative fuels, and the Roadmap for creating an Intelligent Transport System (ITS).
New technologies related to the greening of the sector will be demonstrated. It is expected that the solutions proposed at the conference will lead to real, tangible results.27 January 2020
