85th Annual Session of the Inland Transport Commitee
February 21 – February 24 CET
About the Event
The International Road Federation (IRF) is pleased to support The upcoming 85th session of the Inland Transport Committee (Geneva, 21 – 24 February 2023). ITC 2023 will bring together transport leaders from United Nations Member States and key transport stakeholders from around the world with the aim to turn inland transport into a catalyst of climate solutions. This international event is one of the many through which the International Road Federation (IRF) will celebrate this year its 75th anniversary.
The session’s high-level segment will take place on 21 February. The theme of the conference is: “Actions of the inland transport sector to join the global fight against climate change.” Three panel discussions include:
- Critical partnerships and leaving no-one behind in the climate battle: global challenges and winning formulas for net-zero leaders;
- Bridging regulators and innovators to bring to scale critical technologies supporting climate change mitigation actions;
- A bet we can’t afford to lose: challenges and opportunities in the nexus of international financial and regulatory support for climate action.
The transport sector accounts for almost a quarter of global energy-related CO2 emissions (23%). Inland transport contributes more than 71% of all transport related emissions. These figures highlight the critical importance of inland transport, and the great potential it has to be a nexus of change.
The ITC has a unique role in harnessing the full potential of inland transport solutions.
