Environmentally Sustainable Transport Forum for Africa
April 16, 2013, 1:30pm-2:30pm
- Africa Transport Policy Program (SSATP) in partnership with UN Habitat and the World Bank Africa Sustainable Development Department
The establishment of the Environmentally Sustainable Transport (EST) Forum for Africa will be a critical platform for high-level discussions on the interconnected areas of common interest on transport, environment, human health and human settlements. It will be integrated into the emerging architecture of regional ESTs (Asia and Latin America) to enable Africa to participate when issues of sustainable transport and development are discussed in the context of post-2015 development goals. The purpose of this side event is to present and discuss with participants the results of a stakeholder consultation process which was conducted on the establishment of an EST Forum for Africa.
