About the Conference
Mobility that is smart and sustainable will be essential in addressing global issues such as climate change, poverty, women’s empowerment, and public health and safety.
Transport leaders from around the world will join The World Bank and EMBARQ, the sustainable mobility initiative of WRI Ross Center for Sustainable Cities for Transforming Transportation 2018: Sustainable Mobility in the Digital Era to explore the cutting-edge solutions that will help make mobility safer, greener, more inclusive and efficient.
The forum will focus on how new technologies, ideas, and business models in the transport sector can:
- ensure access to high-quality transport;
- improve systems efficiency;
- dramatically reduce injuries and fatalities from road-traffic accidents; and
- lower the environmental footprint of the sector.
This year’s conference will pay special attention to the role technology and digital platforms can play in the transition to sustainable transportation, looking at innovations like shared mobility, autonomous driving, and electric vehicles.
