Transportation – mainly urban transportation -- accounts for 26 per cent of global carbon emissions. It is the only sector where carbon emissions continue to grow, adding to the climate change burden. Indian cities are developing at a frenetic pace; the urban commute in these cities is leading to immense energy guzzling and air pollution – a situation which is echoed in most cities of the Global South.
The challenge that cities and their transport managers face, therefore, is that of transitioning to clean and low carbon technologies. This is a field which offers a huge scope for cross-learning from other cities – especially cities in the developed world. The International Conclave on Clean and Low Carbon Transport Strategies is being organized by Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) to exchange ideas and knowledge and explore the scope for this cross-learning.
We invite journalists from India to attend and cover this two-day event in New Delhi. The Conclave will offer you an opportunity to know more about the rapidly evolving world of clean transport technologies, inform you about the best practices prevalent across the world, and bring you face to face with some key experts in the subject.
Interested journalists can apply with the details as listed below. Only the shortlisted journalists will be informed of their selection. All shortlisted journalists will be provided travel and accommodation support by CSE for the duration of this meeting. All attending journalists will be expected to cover the event and write and publish at least one article on the subject in their respective media platforms after the event.
Please mail in your application to the undersigned with the following details:
