Consultation for Decision-Makers on Implementing Sustainable Transport
The Open Working Group (OWG), established by the General Assembly to develop recommendations on Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) will be discussing sustainable transport in its January, 2014 session. To promote the integration of sustainable transport in the goal framework of the post 2015 development agenda it is important to demonstrate how sustainable transport aligns with the overarching post 2015 themes: eradication of absolute poverty and the promotion of sustainable prosperity. A more detailed results framework for sustainable transport, elaborating the proposed targets on sustainable transport and their contribution to the post 2015 development agenda will also be helpful.
