This 8-day training course (25 April – 2 May 2019) is a joint effort of UN-Habitat’s Capacity Development Unit and Urban Mobility Unit – in particular the Urban Pathways programme. It aims at the development of skills and know-how in transport sector policy and implementation. The course aims to: (i) inspire participants on an alternative paradigm for urban mobility in their city which introduces more efficient, inclusive, safe and innovative public transport; (ii) equip participants with knowledge and tools to prepare feasible strategies and actions towards more sustainable, safe, accessible, and innovative mobility; (iii) share cutting-edge knowledge by engaging experts from the field to present practical case studies from the region but also through UN-Habitat and its partners; and (iv) learn from Korean institutions and field visits to projects on how to successfully embed sustainable mobility solutions in planning, policies and regulations; and more.
Key issues addressed during the training course include but not limited to analysis of current situation – impacts of non-sustainable transport; understanding of the sustainable mobility concept and its fundamentals components; available modes and options for safe, affordable, accessible and sustainable mobility; linking transport to land use planning; sustainable urban mobility planning; and how to design an action plan that consists of prioritized actions on both policy development as well as programme implementation for sustainable transport.
The course will offer cutting edge lectures, case studies and references from different countries. It will be organized in the format of an interactive and problem-solving workshop that allows for exchange, discussions and peer-to-peer learning amongst the participants. Furthermore, the course will expose participants to sustainable transport policy and practices from different countries in Asia, with a hands-on in the experience of Korea through site visits and discussions with Korean sustainable mobility practitioners.
The training course will take place at IUTC Eco-complex – an environment friendly facility – in Gangwon Province, Republic of Korea.
