Developing climate resilient transport: A Research Knowledge Exchange
March 29, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Research Knowledge Exchange showcases their latest research on building transport systems that are greener, more efficient, safer, and climate change resilient on 29th of March 2022 at 13:00 GMT.
“Transport infrastructures build economies and communities – they get people and goods to where they need to be, including accessing schools, markets and health services. We need to increase our connectivity and continue to grow infrastructures, particularly in low-income countries (LICs), but how can this be delivered given the multifaceted challenges of climate change? “
“Transport enables development, but it also causes pollution, traffic congestion, road accidents and is a huge contributor to CO2 emissions. Climate change leads to extreme weather events, which can result in major damage to infrastructures, putting a huge strain on the already stretched transport systems in LICs.”
“This free, online webinar will explore ways we can build transport systems that are cleaner, safer, more efficient and better adapted to shifts in weather patterns.”
Dr. Andrew Quinn, Reader in Atmospheric Science and Engineering at the University of Birmingham.
Presenting highlights from the soon-to-be-published Climate-Resilient Transport: A policy guide provides systematic guidance on how to scope, develop, and implement climate change adaptation plans for transport infrastructure in LICs in Africa and South Asia.
Tim Durant, Associate Director at Vectos
Presenting findings from the TRANSitions project aims to help transition the policy debate, stakeholder relations and informal transport services for a low carbon future.
Please note daylight saving clock changes in March in some regions mean the event takes place at 13.00 GMT; 14.00 BST; 09.00 EST.
