UIC and UNCRD are pleased to invite you to a webinar dedicated to sustainable railways in Asia-Pacific to be held online on 14 April 2022 from 8 to 11 a.m. Paris time/4 to 7 p.m. Nagoya time.

To continue and expand upon dialogue at the 14th Regional EST Forum in Asia of the United Nations Centre for Regional Development (UNCRD) on 18-20 October 2021, UNCRD and UIC are holding a joint conference that will focus on railways.

The event is a continuation of collaboration and meetings with international partners in the region. You are invited to participate and learn more about the work of the International Union of Railways (UIC) in the field of sustainability within the framework of the UIC Vision for Rail 2030 and the Aichi 2030 Declaration on Environmentally Sustainable Transport - Making Transport in Asia Sustainable (2021-2030) issued by UNCRD on 20 October 2021.

The event will provide an opportunity to hear about best practices in sustainability from the Asia-Pacific region and discuss the common challenges the railways of the region are facing in terms of decarbonisation. The event will include a discussion to identify the opportunities for rail to help accelerate a green and just recovery from the pandemic. This online conference will be useful to policymakers and railway operators alike and offers an opportunity to collaborate more closely as a railway community.

Attendance is open to all.

The event will be held via Zoom on 14 April from 8 to 11 a.m. (Paris time)/4 to 7 p.m. (Nagoya time).

The programme and online registration are available here.
