 EURIST signs Warsaw – Statement

November 2013

From time to time there are moments in the history of an organization where its members  are called upon to give their active support to an initiative directly related to the objectives of the organization.
This is such a moment for the SLoCaT partnership. When your organization joined SLoCaT you expressed your support for the Bellagio Declaration, which amongst others states: “ Effective Climate Action is incomplete without addressing the overall system performance of the Transport Sector“.
This message is reflected in the Warsaw Statement on Low Carbon Transport and Sustainable Development“, the outcome document of Transport Day 2013.  This document was drafted by a small committee chaired by Michael Replogle (ITDP) and benefitted from the inputs of many of you.
We intend to make active use of the Warsaw Statement in our outreach activities on transport and climate change. It is important therefor to have broad registered support for the Warsaw Statement. We are therefore asking you to give your organizational endorsement of the Warsaw Statement. You can do so by going to: and endorse the Warsaw Statement.
In addition, we also have the possibility for individuals to endorse the Warsaw Statement and we hope that many of you and your colleagues will also express their individual support.

Thank you in advance for your support.

There is a need for a holistic approach to urban development and human settlements which provides for affordable housing and infrastructure and prioritizes slum upgrading and urban regeneration. Government’s task for UN-Habitat is to promote an integrated approach to planning and building sustainable cities and urban settlements, support local authorities,increase public awareness and enhance the involvement of local people, including the poor, in decision making.
