As a pre-event to the ITF Summit, this workshop will touch upon one of the most crucial topics for sustainable transport: Utilising Data for Better Policies. Measuring transport emission data is key to identifying appropriate actions and ultimately making transport more climate-friendly. However, data availability is one of the biggest challenges for evidence-based decision-making and evaluating outcomes of actions. Emission data for the transport sector is already collected in many projects and across different organisations in a time- and resource-intensive process – but it is often not shared. This is a challenge that this workshop will address through professional facilitation based on the design thinking method.

The event will bring organisations and people, working on the topic, together to create solutions for transport emission data sharing. In a highly creative and interactive way, the participants will exchange on their needs and visions, develop first prototypes and test their functionality. 

The key questions will be: How can we bring the efforts of the international community together on this topic of transport emission data? What do we need? What would be the best tool for our purpose and how would it look like? 

But the workshop will not stop at paying lip service: At the end of the two-day event, a collaborative product will be identified from the prototypes that can create more impactful support to developing countries, designing new projects and enhancing emission forecasts on global, regional and country level.
