The session was focused on the critical role of infrastructure for the Sustainable Development Goals. The meeting attendees highlighted that infrastructure systems form the backbone of every society, providing essential services that include energy, water, waste management, transport and telecommunications.

Also, infrastructure plays a key role in all three dimensions of sustainable development: the economy, the environment and society.

And sustainable transportation system is one that:

allows the basic access needs of individuals and societies to be met safely and in a manner consistent with human and ecosystem health, and with equity within and between generations;

is affordable, operates efficiently, offers choice of transport mode, and supports economy;

limit emissions and waste within the planet’s ability to absorb them, minimizes consumption of non-renewable resources to the sustainable yield level, reuses and recycles its components, and minimizes the use of land and the production of noise. Sustainable transport supports inclusive growth, job creation, poverty reduction, access to markets, the empowerment of women and the well-being of persons with disabilities and other vulnerable groups. It is also essential to fight climate change, reduce air pollution and improve road safety.
