Against the backdrop of Six Actions to Enable Walking, Cycling and Public Transport for People and the Planet - A Call to Action by SLOCAT, this year’s edition of SLOCAT Transport Day at COP is dedicated to the topic of enabling meaningful investment across these modes towards a transformative systemic shift in mobility. At COP27 Sharm el Sheikh, governments, multilateral organisations, international financial institutions and national development banks must act to meaningfully scale-up walking, cycling and public transport systems, particularly in Low- and Middle-Income Countries. The SLOCAT Partnership calls on these stakeholders to enable walking, cycling and public transport solutions with specific, measurable, attainable, relevant and time-based action in six areas.
Since 2013, SLOCAT has been organising Transport Day at COP to curate multi-stakeholder trust spaces for peers within and beyond the transport community to exchange, learn from each other and collaborate. The annual event facilitates the interface between knowledge, policy and practice spheres of action and carries the voice of the movement from one COP into the next. Through Transport Days, the SLOCAT Partnership is leveraged to set ambitious global agendas and catalyse new thinking and solutions for the urgent transformation of transport and mobility systems as a solution to many of the world’s climate and sustainability challenges.
The outcomes of this event will feed into SLOCAT’s work in support of ambitious national and subnational climate strategies, as well as into our engagement in the Global Stocktake of the Paris Agreement. Moreover, they will be conveyed to the Egyptian COP27 Presidency as a complement to their leadership towards a COP27 Sustainable Urban Transport Initiative.
