Event Description:

The ITF’s 2017 Summit on Governance of Transport will explore the trends shaping transport governance and identify the most pressing challenges in the transport sector. Through the governance lens, it will focus on infrastructureglobal connectivity, the right regulation for innovation, and urban access and mobility.

Transport governance affects decisions regarding everything from local cycle paths to global trade routes. The governance framework both responds to and shapes decision-making and policies addressing inter alia environmental and climate considerations, working conditions, accessibility, and technical solutions, as well as organisational and financial challenges for the sector that are in constant flux. Important factors in this include legislative and regulatory frameworks, attribution and devolution of responsibilities between different levels of authority and across sectors and involvement of stakeholders. 

The Annual Summit of the International Transport Forum is the premier global transport policy event. Since 2008, the Summit brings together ministers from around the world to share policy perspectives with CEOs, heads of international organisations, thought leaders from civil society and academia, and the media. This vibrant conference addresses strategic and topical issues across all transport modes where participants can engage in the debate through a variety of session formats.
