- Public statement
The International Transport Workers' Federation (ITF) and UITP, representing all the people working in the public transport sector, are committed to enhancing the already outstanding technical capacity of our people to deliver even better transport and customer centered services and investments in support of the Global Climate Action Agenda at COP23. In all countries, growing public transport helps fight unemployment and boost the economy while enhancing quality of life and reducing emissions. In short, citizens, cities and the planet will be better off with more public transport. Both ITF and UITP have worked on a joint statement on the advancement of public transport and the importance it will play during the debate at COP23.
