UNIDO: Achieving Equity through Electric Mobility Solutions - Welcome Address
There is a growing importance of equity considerations in development, particularly for emerging markets embracing technology to solve some of the most pressing socio-economic issues. Transportation is essential to economic growth and social development, while our energy choices affect the environmental eco-system we operate in.
The UNIDO session aims to create an understanding of what is meant by equity in the mobility and energy sectors, policy priorities to achieving equity, as well as economic opportunities for previously marginalised and vulnerable groups of society being empowered to participate in the green economy. The session also sheds light on South African efforts in promoting equity in the uptake of eMobility in the advent of transformation.
