In July 2019, the members of the SLoCaT Partnership and the supporters of the SLoCaT Foundation elected a new cohort of Board Members to serve for the next three years.
The new SLoCaT Board brings together a diverse group of experts in terms of geographical representation and wide-range of experience from transport, energy, and cities sectors. François Davenne is one of the new members elected. He succeeds Jean-Pierre Loubinoux who was previously Member of the Board. SLoCat helps UIC to represent rail at international level, and particularly at conferences on climate change (COP).
The Partnership on Sustainable, Low Carbon Transport (SLoCaT) promotes the integration of sustainable transport in global policies on sustainable development and climate change and leveraging action in support of the implementation of the global policies. SLoCaT consists of a multi-stakeholder partnership of over 90 organisations, which is supported by the SLoCaT Foundation.
The SLoCaT Partnership on Sustainable Transport is a multi-stakeholder partnership of over 90 organisations (representing UN organisations, multilateral and bilateral development organisations, NGOs and foundations, academies and the business sector).
The thematic scope of the Partnership is land transport in developing countries, including freight and passenger transport. Both motorised and non-motorised transport are included. The policies proposed by SLoCaT are universal but the geographical scope of the Partnership is mainly for developing countries. The Partnership’s current focus is Asia, Latin America and Africa.
