ITS 4 Climate Congress
September 17 - September 19
Led by TOPOS – Digital Aquitaine, this first congress on ITS and climate takes part of the ITS4Climate initiative launched during the 21st Conference of the Parties in 2015.
COP 21 was a key milestone in the history of global climate change policy. An ambitious goal was agreed – to hold the increase of global average temperature below 2°C above pre-industrial levels, and pursue efforts to limit the increase to 1,5°C.
However, three years later, the key message coming from COP 24 (December 2018, Katowice) was that global emissions have now increased to their highest level ever (2.7% global increase in 2018).
Urgent actions are required globally – in the next 12 years – in order to achieve the objectives of the Paris Agreement.
Smart mobility solutions and services can deliver major impacts towards reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from the transport & mobility sector. However, until now ITS deployment remains well below levels needed to achieve European and global targets.
