Third Carpathian Convention Working Group Meeting on Sustainable Transport

On 4-5 June 2013, a further meeting of the Carpathian Convention Working Group on Sustainable Transport was convened in Vienna, at the Vienna International Centre. The meeting was organised by the Interim Secretariat of the Carpathian Convention (supported by UNEP Vienna) in strong collaboration with the European Academy Bolzano (EURAC) and its Vienna Office.

It was the follow-up meeting to the previous meetings organized in Kosice October 2012 and Vienna February 2013with the specific objective to continue to foster the development of the draft text Protocol on Sustainable Transport  to the Carpathian Convention.

Capitalizing on the previously achieved results, the Working Group made further good progress in negotiating the draft text Protocol. The meeting benefited from the results gained during the implementation of the ACCESS2MOUNTAIN project including a presentation on the recently carried out study on traffic flows and possible solutions in Eastern Serbia/Timok region (prepared by Zoi Environment Network).

The next meeting of the Working Group is scheduled for autumn 2013 with the aim of further elaborating the draft text of the Protocol. It is envisaged to have a final consolidated version of the draft text of the Protocol ready by the end of 2013 with a view of presenting it to the fourth Meeting of the Conference of the Parties (COP 4) to the Carpathian Convention which will be held in the Czech Republic on 24-26 September 2014.
