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.
