BAQ Session: Achieving the Goals of the Bangkok 2020 Declaration

BAQ Breakout Session Green 2
Meeting Room 314, Suntec Singapore
Stream: Sustainable Urban Development

The UN Center for Regional Development (UNCRD) and CAI-Asia will jointly organize a breakout session during the Better Air Quality (BAQ) Conference on the topic "Achieving the Goals of the Bangkok 2020 Declaration - What is the Role of Stakeholders". This BAQ Breakout Session is organized to align Bangkok 2020 Declaration with other transport streams of BAQ 2010 and aims to engage stakeholders with varying interest in air quality, sustainable transport, and climate change mitigation in Asia.

Bangkok 2020 Declaration: Sustainable Transport Goals 2010-2020 was outlined during the Fifth Environmentally Sustainable Transport Forum held last August 2010 in Bangkok, Thailand and attended by about 200 participants representing at least 15 countries in Asia. The Declaration provides possible options and measures, particularly a regional consensus on how to realize a promising decade of sustainable transport through the strategies and voluntary goals successfully agreed at the Forum.

As the Declaration aims to influence the decisions of governments and transport stakeholders in the region over the next decade, the BAQ 2010 Breakout Session is organized to build effective and synergetic linkage between EST in Asia and transport stakeholders (including the partners of SLoCaT) in addressing the 20 EST Goals at local, national and regional levels.

BAQ Breakout Session on Achieving the Goals of the Bangkok 2020 Declaration - What is the Role of Stakeholders is scheduled on November 9 (Tuesday), 3.30-5.00pm.

CAI-Asia has been cooperating with UNCRD as one of the important regional partners for the promotion of the UNCRD-led Asian EST Initiative and actively contributing to the Regional EST Forums.
