2022 IRF Annual Conference

October 6, 2022 All day

About the Conference

Sustainable transport is key in providing access to social and economic opportunities for all, promoting equity and sustainable economic growth. It is equally an essential element toward reaching the targets set in the Paris Climate Agreement. The challenge: emerging and developing countries face rapidly growing demand for transport infrastructure, while high-income countries struggle to upgrade and maintain substantial parts of their ageing transport infrastructure network. Both require creative approaches to meet the transport investment gap and innovative thinking coupled with technology to facilitate the Integration across transport networks and modes which is needed.

Under the theme “Decarbonise, Finance, and Digitalise the Road Sector for a Sustainable Mobility & Growth” the 4th International Conference for Sustainable Mobility 2022 IRF Annual Conference was hosted on 6 October 2022 in Marrakech. The conference gathered high-level stakeholders from the public and private sector – as well as start-ups – to discuss innovative approaches to accelerate the roll-out of safe, inclusive, and climate-friendly transport infrastructure projects for sustainable economic prosperity and strong recovery from the pandemic.
