Together the the German Centers for Research and Innovation in New Delhi and Moscow, the DWIH New York is hosting a web-talk on the future of urban mobility. The talk is part 1 of a 3-day series of talks by the DWIH New Delhi on our collective annual topic: cities and climate.

Speakers

  1. Mr Sharif Qamar, The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI)

Worldwide by 2030, about 70% of world’s population is predicted to live in cities. This means more passenger vehicles and larger impact on the environment but also a strong need for development of infrastructure in cities and greater availability of public transport as well. As cities try to adapt to these needs, researchers and policy makers across the globe are working to make the future of mobility smarter and more sustainable.

In our first international webinar together with our colleagues in DWIH New York and DWIH Moscow, we look at research and case studies from urban city transport across 5 countries. Researchers from India, Germany, Moscow and United states of America will present newer technologies, research and good practice examples as they work on the opportunities and challenges of urban mobility. Discussion will focus around smart mobility for cities including:

  • Alternate modes of transport
  • Transport modelling/ simulation
  •  Intelligent transport systems
