SLoCaT: National Focal Points volunteers wanted in Europe

Are you working on transport or actively following news and developments in the transport sector of your country?

Then there is an opportunity for you to accelerate the uptake of sustainable transport: The SLoCaT (The Partnership on Sustainable, Low Carbon Transport )are seeking national focal points that can provide information on policies and data from their respective countries and regions.

Call for National Focal Points volunteers: are you next?

The SLoCaT Partnership on Sustainable, Low Carbon Transport is lead on the Transport and Climate Change Global Status Report (TCC-GSR), a flagship report on climate change and transport. The first TCC-GSR 2018 covered various data-sets (e.g. passenger and freight volumes, CO2 emissions by transport, future projections and various data-sets to support measurement of progress on sustainable transport) and had over 180 policies from 70 countries. The first TCC-GSR was downloaded nearly 2,000 times reaching people in over 95 countries. Findings of the report were presented at the Climate Change Conference COP24, Transforming Transportation among other events.

SLoCaT is ramping up the second edition of the TCC-GSR 2020, which is intended to include more data and more policies and thus, it wants to establish a global network of national focal points of the TCC-GSR. The national focal points are local or regional experts that volunteer to provide information about a certain country or region (e.g. walking and cycling in Ethiopia, e-mobility in Latin America etc.).

SLoCaT is aiming to recruit national focal points on an ongoing basis with major activities being conducted in early 2020. Don’t miss out the opportunity to contribute to the TCC-GSR and offer your expert knowledge on sustainable, low carbon transport.

Every contributor will be mentioned in the acknowledgements section of the TCC-GSR, a report which is downloaded multiple thousand times. Contributors will be informed about the progress of the TCC-GSR (development, peer-review, webinars, events etc.) and will have opportunities to engage in sustainable transport events in their region or country.
