RSG Sr. Director, Peter Plumeau, will be presenting at the Transforming Transportation annual conference. His presentation is titled “Integrating Goods Movement Needs into Sustainable Urban Transportation Design.”
The Transforming Transportation annual conference is co-organized by EMBARQ, the sustainable urban transport arm of the World Resources Institute's (WRI) WRI Ross Center for Sustainable Cities, and the World Bank. The event convenes leading transport and urban development experts from national and local government, finance institutions, foundations, civil society, and business to discuss the latest global trends, experiences, and best practices in sustainable transport.
This year’s conference will focus on Smart Cities for Shared Prosperity, and will examine how smart, connected urban mobility can improve quality of life in cities. Through panels, presentations, and networking opportunities, discussions at Transforming Transportation 2015 will address how the upcoming United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) impact urban transport, with an emphasis on data and technology, governance, and international financial flows.
