Ninth annual “Transforming Transportation” event at the World Bank in Washington, D.C. on January 26-27, 2012. The World Bank 1818 H Street NW Washington, DC
This year’s conference will focus on big ideas to scale up sustainable transport best practices in cities worldwide. In previous years, we highlighted challenges facing urban transport and key projects that were good examples to emulate. The aim in 2012 is to reflect briefly on past successes and ongoing challenges of implementing sustainable urban transport and development, and then to turn our attention to scaling up for the future. We will give special attention to finance from private sources, national government programs and international development agencies.
