The activities of the SLoCaT Partnership are guided by the SLoCaT Work Program.

The Work Program is developed by the SLoCaT Secretariat based on consultations with members of the Partnership.  Following review by  the SLoCaT Foundation Board, the Work Program is presented for discussion and sign-off at the Annual Meeting of the SLoCaT Partnership in January. The SLoCaT Foundation Board then approves a budget to implement the agreed upon Work Program.. 

The focus of SLoCaT’s work

The emphasis of SLoCaT’s activities continues to be on the promotion of sustainable, low carbon transport policies at the global, regional and national level. SLoCaT is not a project-oriented organization, its members, however, do implement projects. SLoCaT is a collaborative effort to accelerate and scale-up sustainable, low carbon transport policies.

Highlights from the SLoCaT Work Program 2014

Updated Work Program 2013-2014: “From Breakthrough to Breakout” – (Updated January 2014)

After having realized an internal consensus in the transport and wider development community on the need for more sustainable, low carbon transport and realizing a convergence around the “Avoid-Shift-Improve” as the new paradigm for development of transport infrastructure and services the emphasis of the SLoCaT Partnership will now shift to bringing the wider development community on-board and promote the rapid scaling up of sustainable, low carbon transport solutions.

Main Themes, Goals and SLoCaT Priorities 2013-2014:

The overall goal for SLoCaT is “Universal Access to Clean, Safe and Affordable Transport”. To realize this countries and cities will have to take action through policy and regulatory actions and enabling financing. On the ground, a greater number of sustainable transport programs and projects are required from government, private sector as well as domestic and international development organizations in order to scale up the many successful demonstration projects around the world.

In 2014, SLoCaT continues to promote the integration of sustainable transport into the global discussions on Sustainable Development and Climate Change. Progress in these parallel but complementary streams will help to advance sustainable, low carbon transport at international, national and city level. In addition, SLoCaT will also actively support the Regional intergovernmental Environmentally Sustainable Transport (EST) Forum in Asia and encourage their replication or functioning in other main regions of the world. These EST Forums are recognized as another means to influence national and local action on sustainable, low carbon transport.
