Workshop on Capacity Building Strategy for the Implementation ofLow Carbon High Volume Transport in South Asia

A Workshop on Capacity Building Strategy for the Implementation of Low Carbon High Volume Transport in South Asia was organised by the Partnership on Sustainable, Low Carbon Transport (SLoCaT), under the framework of the Applied Research Programme in High Volume Transport (HVT) by the Department for International Development of the United Kingdom (DFID) on 2 October 2018.

The summary report of the workshop is available here.

The workshop was a pre-event to the Eleventh Intergovernmental Regional Environmentally Sustainable Transport (EST) Forum in Asia, hosted by the United Nations Centre for Regional Development (UNCRD) from 2 – 5 October 2018 in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia.

SLoCaT is currently carrying out a joint project with DFID to explore the current state of knowledge and capacity of low carbon HVT in selected project countries for research in Africa and South Asia. The project will provide a review of potential transport solutions for the selected priority countries to move towards expanding and accelerating uptake of low carbon passenger and freight transport measures.

One of the major planned deliverables of the project is the development of a capacity building strategy for the institutions responsible for the practical uptake and implementation of research findings on low carbon HVT in project countries in Africa and South Asia.

The workshop aimed to obtain input from relevant national and local stakeholders on the needs and barriers in capacity building for implementing low carbon HVT in the region. Their input will contribute to build a proposed capacity building implementation strategy that could be effective in the project countries of the DFID-SLoCaT project.

The workshop was attended by more than 30 participants representing 11 EST countries (Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Cambodia, India, Malaysia, Maldives, Mongolia, Pakistan, Thailand, Vietnam) and 11 different transport organisations, research institutes, and non-government organisations.

The summary report of the workshop is available here.
