This webinar will address the climate change and development challenges of urban transportation (contributions, patterns, etc.) and how this sector can contribute to mitigation objectives. During the presentation, the expert will introduce the different technologies (in a broad sense of hardware, software and orgware) that can be used to develop more climate-smart/clean transportation systems, explaining which are the most common barriers faced by developing countries when using these technologies and how public policies can help to overcome these barriers. The seminar will be focused on technologies and policies most suitable for developing countries, and will also include a discussion on the most successful lessons from developed regions. The webinar is organized by CTCN Consortium Partner, Bariloche Foundation and will be presented by Dr. Alberto Müller. Alberto Müller has a PhD in Economics (Sao Paulo University – Brazil). He has worked for more than twenty years in the transportation sector, as an official at the Argentina’s Government and as a consultant. He is nowadays a full time professor and researcher at the University of Buenos Aires, where he teaches Industrial Organization and Project Evaluation. Regarding transportation, his mean fields are Urban, Road and Rail Transportation. The webinar will be one hour, followed by 30 minutes of "questions and answers" between participants and the presenter. The webinar will be conducted in English, though questions during the "question and answer" period may be submitted in English or Spanish.
