On 15 July, the Partnership on Sustainable, Low Carbon Transport (SLoCaT) announced the election of their new Board of Directors. ICLEI Secretary General Gino Van Begin was one of the nine leaders in the sustainability, transport, climate and cities fields elected to SLoCaT Board of Directors in June 2019.

“ICLEI is proud to continue our partnership and long standing collaboration with SLoCaT to support the ICLEI network of more than 1750 cities and regions in driving the transition to low carbon transport and to ensure that city voices are heard on sustainable mobility policy at all levels,” said Van Begin.

Van Begin joins eight other leaders on the board, including Rana Adib, Executive Secretary, REN21; Mohammed Alsayed – Manager, Economic Infrastructure Division, Islamic Development Bank (IsDB); Sergio Avelleda - Director or Urban Mobility, World Resources Institutes (WRI) Ross Center for Sustainable Cities; .François Davenne, Director General, International Union of Railways (UIC); Aimée Gauthier, Chief Knowledge Officer, Institute for Transportation and Development Policy (ITDP); Mohamed Mezghani – Secretary General, International Association of Public Transport (UITP); Bronwen Thornton, Chief Executive Officer, Walk 21 and Armin Wagner – Head of Sector Project, Sustainable Mobility, Deutsche Gesellschaft für Zusammenarbeit (GIZ).

"SLoCaT warmly welcomes Gino to our Board of Directors and very much looks forward to working with the ICLEI team and membership in the coming years. We are excited about our joint potential to bring the cities and transport sectors closer towards enabling more sustainable and low carbon urban mobility for positive impact on livelihoods and wellbeing in cities across the globe " said Maruxa Cardama, Secretary General of SLoCaT Partnership.

ICLEI works with cities and regions to strengthen low emission development across sectors, and the SLoCaT Partnership is an important driver in helping cities and regions to tackle transport and mobility challenges. SLoCaT has also been a long-standing supporter of ICLEI’s sustainable mobility initiatives from the EcoMobility Alliance to the EcoMobility Congress and Festival Series, which has been held to date in Suwon, Johannesburg, and Kaohsiung.

Prominent ICLEI Members also work directly with SLoCaT to implement their transport plans and policies. Most recently, Manuel Manuel de Araújo, Mayor of Quelimane, Mozambique and Member of the ICLEI Global Executive Committee, led his city to join SLoCaT’s Transport Decarbonization Alliance as one of the first African cities to commit to the Alliance.
