Webinar on Tactical Urbanism: Changing cities and neighbourhoods with bottom-up planning and design

GIZ Transport Events at COP23 - Our Transport Days

The preparations for the 23rd Conference of the Parties (COP23) under the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), from November 6-17, 2017 are well under way, and are equipped to provide a comprehensive understanding of climate challenges and solutions to the most influential stakeholders in climate action. Transportation, currently accounting for approximately 27% of energy-related CO2 emissions, is a sector that will receive increasing attention in forthcoming climate efforts. Recognizing this, the Transport Team of GIZ has prepared a series of events, excursions and activities to connect forward-thinking professionals, and empower ambitious ideas with informed perspectives and focused action strategies.
