Representatives from nearly two dozen Asian national governments, along with representatives of civil society and local government, on August 24th joined in adopting the Bangkok 2020 Declaration, committing to achieving ambitious, measurable goals for environmentally sustainable transportation over the coming decade. ITDP’s founder and global policy director, Michael Replogle, helped develop and negotiate the final agreement at the Fifth EST Forum for Asia, held in Bangkok, Thailand, 23-25 August, working with officials from the United Nations Centre for Regional Development. “This agreement will provide a valuable framework for measuring progress across the region in coming years,” said Replogle.
