About the webinar

According to the projections of the International Transport Forum the share of emissions resulting from transport in developing regions is expected to increase as result of growing economies and an increased demand for transport (ITF 2017). As part of their Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC), the countries of the Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) Region have identified electric mobility as a key measure to achieving their goals.

Taking this into account, the LEDS LAC Platform and the LEDS GP Transport Working Group, together with several partners, are launching the community of practice on electric mobility, a space for ongoing collaboration to allow peer-to-peer learning and to provide a deeper understanding of the options available to overcome barriers. This webinar we present UN Environment´s MOVE initiative and the experiences of City of Medellin (Colombia) and Costa Rica, regarding barriers to electric mobility and they approaches they are using to overcome them.

The webinar will be held in Spanish. If you have any questions about this event, please contact the LEDS LAC Platform Secretariat: info@ledslac.org.
