The UN secretary-general’s new five-year action agenda identifies sustainable transport as one of five building blocks of sustainable development. Yet transport is virtually invisible in the initial framing of Rio+20, the June 2012 UN Conference on Sustainable Development.
A panel of experts will discuss the prospects of getting sustainable transport on the agenda in Rio; how the United States can best promote the issue internationally; and what civil society, business, and government can do to ensure a successful conference. Carnegie’s Dan Sperling will moderate.
