CODATU XVI conference, organised by CODATU in partnership with İstanbul Teknik Üniversitesi (İTÜ), will take place in Istanbul on February the 2nd to the 5th, 2015. The topic of the conference is: “Energy, climate and air quality challenges: the role of urban transport policies in developing countries and emerging economies”. Turning around climate issues linked to urban transport, the debates and presentations will make the conference a milestone on the way to COP21 in Paris in December 2015.

This event, that will gather some 400 decision makers and experts on urban mobility, is organized in two major moments:

(1) A political symposium : a political momentum  to make urban transport major field of action on mitigating climate change (cf website)

(2)  A scientific conference : that aims to increase awareness about the contribution of urban transport to climate change and present solutions
