ADB Transport Forum 2012: Inclusive and Sustainable Transport

ADB Headquarters, Manila, Philippines: 6 – 8 November 2012

  • Asia Pacific
  • Transport Forum

ADB will hold its third Transport Forum from 6 – 8 November 2012, focusing on the theme “Inclusive and Sustainable Transport.” Featuring the world’s leading transport experts, key developing member country officials and ADB transport staff, the forum will provide the opportunity to discuss and debate the most critical issues facing transport today in the Asia and Pacific region. The forum will take place at ADB Headquarters, in Manila, Philippines.

The forum programme will span the breadth of current issues in inclusive and sustainable transport — including key sessions on urban transport, road safety, green freight and transport technologies, climate change resilience, mode choice, socially inclusive transport, road asset management, and cross-border transport — and will also highlight leading aspects of ADB’s work in these areas. New initiatives for the forum include a transport fair and marketplace which will showcase products and services of private corporations and international organisations focused on sustainable transport.

Over 400 senior-level representatives from across the region are expected to attend the forum.
