Transforming Transportation 2023: Accelerating Toward Green & Inclusive Mobility

Follow the event on Twitter #TTDC23


Today’s global challenges are putting serious pressure on transport systems. From climate change and COVID-19 to conflict and macroeconomic instability, what are the implications of the current context for transport, and for the people and businesses that rely on it? How can we help the sector navigate these compounding crises? Can this be a starting point to reimagine transport and make it more inclusive, safe, sustainable, and efficient?

These questions were at the heart of the latest Transforming Transportation conference, which took place at the World Bank’s headquarters on March 14-15. This edition marked the 20-year anniversary of the event, featuring a prestigious lineup of speakers that included government leaders, development partners, and industry experts from around the world. A record-breaking 2,800 participants attended the forum in person and virtually.
