THE ROAD TO COPENHAGEN – DOES CLIMATE CHANGE MATTER FOR SUSTAINABLE TRANSPORT IN DEVELOPING COUNTRIES?
SPEAKER: Holger DalkmannProgramme Director, Sustainable Transport and Climate Change Transport Research Laboratory, United Kingdom
In order to avert catastrophic climate change, national governments must agree on an ambitious, equitable and effective international treaty at the upcoming December 2009 meeting in Copenhagen. Transport-related CO2 emissions will be a key challenge in climate change policy, particularly in developing countries. Dalkmann is responsible for leading key national and international projects and has worked as a policy adviser in China and New Zealand and as a consultant for ADB, World Bank, UNEP, EEA and gtz. He’s recently published a sourcebook on Transport and Climate Change.
