Rio+20 Preparation Meeting

  • Sustainable development

UIC hosted a special meeting of the international Partnership on Sustainable Low Carbon Transport (SLOCAT) to discuss how to make sustainable transport a high priority for the Rio+20 conference. This is a coalition of over 50 sustainable transport organisations including UIC, UITP and many transport institutes and other organisations, all of whom promote or support public transport (rail, metro, bus), cycling and walking).

The meeting discussed the status of the Rio+20 discussions and how organisations can still engage and influence the process. UIC itself is fully engaged with the Rio+20 process – please see the UIC website for more information:
