14:00 - 15:30 Parallel 1-B: Sustainability - Inclusive and Resilient Transport
Objective of Session
Inequalities between different social groups, including between women and men, exclusive growth and great wealth inequalities foster national fragility. Strong transport systems and connectivity have been shown to reduce fragility and build resistance by increasing social cohesion, improving state effectiveness, reducing inequalities and promoting regional integration and cooperation. By considering China as a case study, and the successes and lessons from Liberia and Ethiopia, this parallel session seeks to challenge how transport investment can be viewed through a fragility lens.
