12 to 13 April 2023 | By invitation only

Following the launch of the ESCAP Regional Cooperation Mechanism on Low Carbon Transport in August 2022, the Transport Division of the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) is conducting a series of subregional consultation and capacity building workshops in 2022 and 2023. The goal is to mobilize transport ministries and key stakeholders in the Asia-Pacific region to engage in the transport and climate change policy process and to help advance the goals of the Paris Agreement through transport strategies. This proposed activity is aligned with the objectives of the Regional Action Programme for Sustainable Transport Development in Asia and the Pacific (2022–2026) and will contribute directly to its implementation. 

The first subregional consultation and capacity building workshop in the series was focused on South and Southwest Asia and Southeast Asia, which took place in December 2022, while the second subregional consultation and capacity building workshop in the series is focused on the Pacific subregion and will be hosted by the ESCAP Subregional Office for the Pacific. ESCAP member States from the Pacific subregion are invited to share their national low carbon transport goals, policy priorities and implementation action, as well as their experience in the development of their Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) and long-term low greenhouse gas emission development strategies. 

Objectives 

This workshop will focus on the identification of subregional low carbon transport priorities, implementation action and the development of a cooperation framework for the Regional Cooperation Mechanism on Low Carbon Transport. It will also strengthen the capacity of ESCAP member States in the Pacific to engage in transport and climate change policy dialogues and processes. In addition, the consultation and capacity building workshop will provide a platform for multi-stakeholder engagement.
