Climate Resilient Urban Transport

IsDB-GIZ training in Jakarta (7th - 9th November 2018)

The IsDB and the GIZ organize a training with a focus on Climate Resilient Urban Transport

Why focus on Climate Resilient Urban Transport?

Climate resilience in the transport sector can be understood as the capacity to maintain core functions of the transport system and its services in the face of climatic impacts. These impacts include both slow onset changes, such as increasing average temperatures, and extremes in variability leading to floods, tropical storms etc. A resilient urban transport system is able to cope with impacts, without long-lasting disadvantages for its users and urban life as a whole. These days, resilience is one of the key concepts in the urban mobility discourse on development, climate resilience being part of it. Improving the resilience of the transport sector is extremely crucial for policy makers and people living in risk-prone environments.

What is this training about?

This training introduces the concept of climate resilience in the transport sector and approaches to assess climate vulnerability of urban transport systems. Participants will learn about existing tools to help assess climate risks and about drivers & measures to climate-proof transport infrastructure and services. The training is organized by the Islamic Development Bank (IsDB) together with the GIZ sector project "Sustainable Mobility" on behalf of the German Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development and co-financed by the Transformative Urban Mobility Initiative (TUMI).

Who can participate?

The target group are decision makers and planners of municipal transport systems and representatives of departments for economic development and foreign investments from member states of the Islamic Development Bank and partner countries of Germany’s development cooperation, ideally in charge of climate-proofing transport infrastructure.
