ICCIP and the Transportation Research Center of the University of Nevada Las Vegas (UNLV), USA are organising the Symposium “Climate Change and Transport: Making Mobility More Sustainable”, to be held in Las Vegas, USA, on 7th to 8th August 2017.
Founded in 2008, the International Climate Change Information Programme (ICCIP) http://www.iccip.net/ is a leading independent organisation in the field of information, communication and technology transfer on climate change adaptation.
Consistent with the need for more cross-sectoral interactions among the various stakeholders working in the field of transport and climate change, the aims of the event are as follows:
I. to provide research institutions, universities, NGOs, government agencies and enterprises from the transport sector with an opportunity to display and present their work in the field of climate change and transport;
II. to foster the exchange of information, ideas and experiences acquired in the execution of practical projects, especially successful initiatives and good practice, where climate pressures to the transport sector are reduced;
III. to discuss methodological approaches and experiences deriving from case studies and projects, which aim to show how the impacts of transport to climate change may be reduced in practice; and
IV. to provide networking opportunities and a platform to explore possibilities for cooperation.
Last but not least, a further aim of the event will be to document and disseminate the wealth of experiences available today. To this purpose, the book “Climate Change and Transport: Making Mobility More Sustainable” will be published with all accepted papers. This will be a additional volume to the award-winning book series “Climate Change Management” published by Springer, which since its creation in 2008, has become the world´s leading book series on climate change management
