About the webinar

This webinar aims to share the development and progress of the Zero and Low Emission Mobility Public Policy in the city of Bogota, Colombia. As a consequence of the increased use of motor vehicles in Bogotá, there are high concentrations of particulate matter and greenhouse gas emissions, generating deterioration of air quality and increased risks for respiratory diseases. Likewise, it reinforces the path contrary to Colombia’s commitment to the fulfillment of the Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).

Achieving a public policy requires specific strategies and actions that are articulated and designed jointly by the co-responsible entities and that are aligned with the strategies for mobility of zero and low emission technologies proposed at the global and national level. This webinar presents to the District Secretary of Mobility, who directs the development of this public policy, the actions implemented in public transport through the presentation of Transmilenio, and finally, how these two articulate their actions with the energy sector, through a presentation of ENEL CODENSA. The webinar will be in Spanish. If you have any doubts or queries, please write to the LEDS LAC Platform at info@ledslac.org.
