CODATU News Wednesday 4 March 2015

The Sixteenth International Conference of Urban Transport (CODATU XVI) has been co-organized with the Istanbul Technical University (ITÜ) from the 2nd to  the 5th of February 2015, in ITÜ Maçka Campus of Istanbul (Turkey). The partnership with ITÜ, one of the most prestigious universities in Turkey, and the work of the International Scientific Committee of CODATU XVI were guarantees for CODATU of the high technical and scientific level of papers that were presented during the conference.

Linking Europe and Asia and the North and South, Istanbul with its historical cultural heritage and with its current diverse transport challenges and successes was a unique location for the 16th CODATU conference to bring together politicians, planners, engineers, operators, and researchers.

Enhancing the relationship between urban transport, climate change and air pollution is a challenge both for researchers, experts and decision-makers in emerging and developing countries. This challenge is today at the heart of the debate among climate change experts at the international level. The perspective of the COP21, that will be held in Paris in December 2015, is a real issue for CODATU, its members and the whole international community. CODATU XVI aimed at hosting high level exchanges in order to pave the way towards concrete commitments to be made in Paris.

The International Scientific Committee, composed by members from key institutions of the urban mobility sector, chose the following theme for the conference: “Climate change, air quality and energy challenges: the role of urban transport policies and countermeasures in developing countries and emerging economies”.

Applicable practices and suitable transferrable lessons are addressed in this conference under the following three Sub Themes:

  • Problems and Externalities of Transport
  • Policies and Countermeasures for motorised and non-motorised transport
  • Policies and Countermeasures for urban freight movement

Transport is an integral component of sustaining livelihoods: without efficient urban transport mankind would not survive and develop and nor would economies. Yet, despite the immense benefits that transport enables, such as access to jobs, markets, education, and consumer goods and services via global supply chains, the transport sector generates substantial disbenefits. These include dependence on non-renewable energy, greenhouse gas emissions, local pollutions, road accidents and inequalities of access.

Such disbenefits clearly demonstrate that the transport sector is currently unsustainable economically, environmentally and socially. The way we transport people and goods must be radically changed. Many cities in the world have already started implementing effective policies and countermeasures that seek to avoid and reduce the usage of energy intensive motorised modes. These also bring improvements in accessibility, and hence increased options and opportunities of mobility. The challenge is for us all !
