June 21st – 22nd 2018 | Paris
Zakia Soomauroo, PhD candidate at Technische Universität Berlin and researcher in the Research Field Off-Grid Systems at RLI, will contribute a presentation at the “Transport, Climate Change and Clean Air” Conference, organized by the World Conference on Transport Research Society (WCTRS). In her presentation titled “Sustainable Transportation Systems on Islands: A Closer Look at Todays Situations and Future Pathways in Mauritius”, Zakia will speak about the transport transition process of islands. She argues that island should be frontrunners in the transitioning to low-carbon urban mobility systems.
The focus of the conference is on current transport, climate change and local air pollution research, including the application of scientific methods on impact assessment or evaluation that will provide policy insights on efficient mitigation and adaptation measures for the transport sector. Key outcomes from the discussions will be drafted as inputs to the 2018 Talanoa Dialogue, which is a facilitative dialogue whose inputs will be synthesized and presented at COP 24.
