WASHINGTON, DC (March 14, 2022) — The World Bank and WRI Ross Center for Sustainable Cities invite the press to attend the 20th anniversary of the Transforming Transportation conference, one of the largest global events dedicated entirely to sustainable transport and development — sponsored by Visa, FedEx and the FIA Foundation.

Transforming Transportation 2023 comes at a time of profound change for transport and global development. This year’s World Bank and WRI Ross Center for Sustainable Cities flagship conference will pay special attention to ongoing challenges such as climate change, COVID-19, and macroeconomic instability, taking the current context as a starting point to reimagine transport and make it more inclusive, safe, sustainable, and efficient.

Join us in-person or virtually for two days and engage with high-level policymakers, hear from cutting-edge thinkers, and explore solutions for countries and cities around the world at the Word Bank Headquarters in Washington, DC.

Speakers include Patrick Achi, Prime Minister of Cote D’Ivoire; Oleksandr Kubrakov, Ukraine’s Minister of Infrastructure; and Dr. Andrew Steer, President and CEO, Bezos Earth Fund.

Sessions will be livestreamed globally and address a range of critical topics, including global supply chains, road safety, e-mobility, decarbonization, urban planning, financing and more.
