Cities are already growing at a rapid rate and becoming focal points of human community. The achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals and the New Urban Agenda of the UN Habitat Process hinges on cities and related national and subnational actions. A sustainable and intelligent urban development is essential to take equal account of both human needs and environmental limits. One main area of action is the transport sector. It is considered to be globally the third largest emitter of greenhouse gases with half of the emissions arising from urban transport. Fuel-efficiency, reduction of emissions and a general increase of collective transport means are possible solutions to lower the environmental footprint of transport.
In this event, IRU and MobiliseYourCity will outline challenges and present innovative approaches for sustainable modes of transport and urban mobility.

IRU is the world’s road transport organisation. Its work spans more than 100 countries. Its core constituents are national road transport associations and road transport operators. IRU works closely with governments, the UN and international organisations. At the heart of IRU are millions of journeys across the planet every day: people and goods moving to where they need to be, in buses, coaches, taxis or trucks, for all, or even just a small part, of their journey. In 2009, IRU launched its Smart Move campaign, to globally promote the use of collective passenger transport as the most affordable, efficient, safe and environmentally-friendly way to achieve sustainable mobility for all at the fairest cost for society. Smart Move currently implements activities in Europe, in the East African Community in the CIS countries and in India.
