Technical experts meeting at the EcoMobility Dialogues 2015

Focusing on actions that cities can take in addressing climate change through sustainable measures for urban transport, technical experts and decision-makers’ discussions happened parallel to stakeholders’ dialogues.

During the technical experts meeting more than 30 technical experts on urban mobility from Africa and abroad discussed technical papers with studies and latest findings covering topics such as the role of soot free urban fleets, harmonizing planning approaches tools and implementing procedures and setting robust institutional framework. These highlighted the potential for cities like Johannesburg to leapfrog towards sustainable development goals, saving valuable resources and not repeating errors of more developed cities. The group also discussed the “Johannesburg Declaration on EcoMobility in Cities”, which serves as a commitment document for cities around the world to implement ecomobility options to combat climate change.
