Type: Conference Proceedings
Subject:
Environment; Transport and ICT

Description

Freight and logistics are growing quickly along with economic development in Asia and the Pacific, but the region faces challenges in ensuring that goods move in an efficient, low emissions and low-impact fashion.

The Asian Development Bank (ADB) and Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) jointly held the Green Freight and Logistics in Asia workshop on 25-27 June 2014 in Singapore, to promote peer learning and exchange among key stakeholders active in freight and logistics. The workshop was designed to (i) foster discussion on the potential and benefits of green freight policies in the region; (ii) identify opportunities that can be developed into actions and projects; (iii) shape a broad work plan for national activities; and (iv) identify training needs according to select target groups (thus establishing a knowledge base in support of green freight and logistics programs in the region).

This document contains the workshop proceedings, including summaries for each day of the 3-day workshop and key findings and conclusions.
