Launch of Global Fuel Economy Initiative 2.0

Organised by the Global Fuel Economy Initiative

Since its launch in 2009, the Global Fuel Economy Initiative (GFEI) has been supporting countries to implement policies to improve vehicle efficiency, and tracking progress globally. However, global progress is still not on track, and so as GFEI moves into its second decade, we are re-doubling our efforts with the aim of accelerating the uptake of clean and efficient vehicles ahead of 2030. GFEI partners will use this event to share those plans.

Sustainable road transport connectivity across borders

Organised by UNECE, IRF, IRU, PIARC

Roads are the oldest and most popularly used mode of transport since they are directly connecting goods, people and services door-to-door or being the “first and last mile” for other modes of transport such as maritime, air and railways. 

An efficient road transport network directly contributes to sustainable transport connectivity and regional integration. Efficiency lies on lower transportation costs, integration of rural economies, generation of savings in travel time and trade through cross-border facilitation and sustainable road infrastructure development.

Global Maritime Logistics Dialogue

Maritime logistics is essential for trade: obstacles in the maritime logistics chain have immediate repercussions on trade. The maritime logistics chain consists of many different actors with different roles that are highly interdependent. This means that the performance of the individual actors is to an important extent determined by the behaviour of other actors. There are currently no comprehensive performance indicators for the maritime logistics chain. What exist are indicators on logistics in general and on parts of the maritime logistics chain. As a result, there is a lack of visibility on the performance of maritime logistics chain: performance information is fragmented and often not publicly available. This lack of transparency makes it difficult to have evidence-based dialogue on bottlenecks. A win-win approach is possible if better performance information on the maritime logistics chain would be available.
