COP 15: ADB event on Transport and Climate Change - 13 December - 2.00 - 4.30 pm
For those of you who will be in Copenhagen for COP 15, you are cordially invited to the ADB event on Transport and Climate Change on 13 December, 2.00 - 4.30 pm, Scandic Hotel Vester Sogade 6 DK-1601.
Countries in Asia and the Pacific are facing increasing risks to critical transport infrastructure due to rapid motorization, increased trade, urbanization and extreme
weather events. At the same time, traditional transport investments continue to contribute to rising greenhouse gas emissions. Transport is the fastest growing sector of emissions worldwide, and developing countries will account for more than 80 percent of this increase through 2030.
ADB's Sustainable Transport Initiative is promoting the AVOID-SHIFT-IMPROVE approach to transport in the region. The event will focus on the following priorities
for climate and transport: (i) measuring emissions; (ii) co-benefits of reducing emissions; and (iii) financing change in the transport sector.
Speakers include Dr. Rajendra Pachauri, Chairman of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).
Please register your attendance with Lauren Sorkin of ADB (lsorkin@...).
Drinks will be served after the event!
Vice-Chair, Board of Trustees
