UITP Asia-Pacific joined the Urban Transport for Livable Cities Forum 2019 organised by the Asian Development Bank (ADB) in Manila, Philippines from 30 September to 4 October 2019, as one of the Supporting Partners.
Effective public transport systems and sustainable urban mobility are key enablers to make a city livable. Best practices from all over the world show that sustainable mobility can be achieved when public transport is the backbone of mobility with a complementary system of highly integrated multi-modal plan including walking, cycling, shared mobility and new mobility services. Yet, these practices are essentially coming from developed countries and cities. In Asia, cities like Seoul, Singapore, Taipei and Tokyo are leading in providing high quality urban transport.
ADB invited development banks (JICA, AFD, GIZ, KFW), decision-makers predominately from South-East Asian Cities, urban transport specialists (UITP, WRI, UNDP, ITDP) to exchange knowledge, debate and define forefront solutions to build sustainable urban mobility systems specifically adapted to developing Asian context.
