E-training workshop Date: 24—28 May 2021
Application deadline: 20 April 2021
Are you tired of facing traffic jams and air-pollution? Are looking forward to green and healthy style of transportation? Is your city planning to shift towards Sustainable and Green Mobility? If you answer “Yes” – our e-training course on low carbon mobility might be needed.
The main objective of this course is to help training participants to gain better practical knowledge about the design and management of low-carbon, sustainable transportation models which can be applied in their cities. Specifically, it is aimed to inspire participants on an alternative paradigm for urban mobility in their city that is more efficient, inclusive, safe, and innovative; equip participants with knowledge and tools to prepare feasible strategies and solutions; share cutting-edge knowledge by experts from the region but also through UN-Habitat and its partners; especially learn from Korean institutions on how to successfully embed e-mobility and other sustainable mobility solutions in planning, policies and regulations; and build a peer-to-peer learning environment and partnership platform for continuous exchange on sustainable urban mobility.
The training is tailored to the needs of decision makers, policymakers and transport practitioners from cities in Asia and the Pacific region who work in national and local governments and have direct responsibilities for the planning, design, finance, implementation and management of transport policies, programmes and projects. Those who work in private and academic institutions, as well as NGOs and not-for-profit organizations, may also find the training program useful. Participants should be able to demonstrate a relationship of their work with the core theme and objectives of the course and have a minimum of 5 years of experience in the relative field.
The training workshop is 5-day course, which will address specific topics including analysis of current situation – impacts of non-sustainable transport, understanding of the sustainable mobility concept and its fundamentals components, its linkages to Sustainable Development Goals, New Urban Agenda and Paris Climate Agreement, and high-lighting its critical importance from a public health perspective; available modes and options for safe, affordable, accessible and sustainable mobility, with a particular focus on electric mobility in its diverse forms; linking Transport to Land Use Planning, including for e-mobility networks and more.
