Better Air Quality (BAQ) 2008
was held in Bangkok, Thailand
12-14 November 2008

Join the CAI-Asia Partnership

Workshop on Sustainable transport, air quality and integration
25-26 October 2005, United Nations Conference Center, Bangkok, Thailand

Bangkok , like many Asian cities, is growing fast. Politicians, decision-makers and public transport operators need to reconcile the limitations of existing infrastructure with growing demand. The economic viability of cities depends heavily on their transport networks and this will become even more so in the future. International issues such as Greenhouse gas emissions, price of energy and the time wasted in traffic congestion will determine the quality and speed of economic development.

The Transportation and Tourism Department of UNESCAP, UITP, the international association of public transport and GTZ, Deutsche Gesellschaft für Technische Zusammenarbeit are bringing their international experience and best practice examples to this joint seminar. Key aspects of transport policies and modal integration as stepping stones to sustainable communities will be presented and put in the regional context. These efforts should result in the provision of adequate mobility for citizens in the region.

Presentations and proceedings are now online at the GTZ-SUTP website.
