Sustainable Mobility Requires a New Policy Approach Today – Knowledge Exchange Course  

IRF is proud to support the SuM4All partnership on its next four-module course to be held on 14, 21, 28 September, and 5 October 2021. Under the theme “Sustainable Mobility Requires a New Policy Approach Today” the course will serve as a knowledge exchange space for decision-makers and stakeholders in the transport sector. 

The world economy is changing rapidly; with an abundance of new opportunities, come new risks and vulnerabilities. As countries around the world undergo a fundamental reconfiguration to adapt, making the right policy decisions has become more challenging than ever.  Transportation and mobility define the very well-being of our daily lives and livelihoods and therefore, rethinking and adapting transport policy must be prioritized. 

The four-module virtual knowledge exchange hosted by SuM4All is geared towards transport decision-makers and stakeholders, and will cover: 

  • Key dynamics that are shaping the future of mobility and necessitating a new policy approach, including the SDGs, data and technology, open government and citizen engagement, and equity and inclusion;
           
  • Measurement and tracking of country progress toward sustainable mobility;
      
  • Generation of customized country roadmaps of action toward sustainable mobility; and

  • Sharing of knowledge and experience with peer countries on the implementation of action plans. 

This course is designed for participants who are interested in a new approach to decision-making in transport that is aligned with the SDGs and Paris Climate ambition. It does not require transportation sector expertise. 

  • Transport policymakers, regional and country-specific transport specialists, and all stakeholders with a vested interest in a more holistic and collaborative approach to transport policy. 

  • Officials within ministries and banks responsible for transport, gender, governance, finance, and urban and rural development.
     
  • Industry stakeholders, including private sector partners and staff from multilateral development banks who wish to gain additional tools and understand opportunities for making policy and investment decisions that will advance collective aims and progress toward SDGs.
