United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) is organizing the above captioned subregional meeting and capacity building workshop in collaboration with the Ministry of Road Transport and Bridges, Bangladesh on 10 - 11 May 2023 in Dhaka.
Achieving the objectives of the Paris Agreement of limiting global warming to well below 2 degree Celsius compared to pre-industrial levels will require rapid decarbonization across all sectors including the transport sector. Transitioning to electric mobility in public transport is one of the policy options to reduce vehicle emissions in cities and dependence on fossil fuel for transport operations. Furthermore, electric mobility, improvement of public transport and shifts to renewable energy sources are some of the key transport strategies listed in the nationally determined contributions of Asian countries.
The objective of the meeting and workshop is to share regional, subregional and national experiences on transitioning to electric mobility and to raise awareness and enhance capacity of key stakeholders on the development of national policy frameworks on electric mobility. Participants from South and Southeast Asia, representatives of development partners and international and regional experts on electric mobility are expected to attend the meeting.
The meeting and workshop will be conducted in English language only.
