Ashgabat, Turkmenistan, Nov. 26
By Elchin Huseynov – Trend:
The world community should give the green light to investments in innovative technologies, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said addressing the opening of the global conference on sustainable transport in Ashgabat Nov. 26.
The UN head said an advisory group, comprising high level experts, was created in search of solutions for sustainable development in 2014.
This was done because there is awareness that sustainable transport can contribute to inclusive growth, creating jobs, reducing poverty, opening markets, giving women authority and increasing the well-being of other vulnerable population groups, said the UN secretary general.
Ban Ki-moon said the Advisory Group published a report which contains numerous important recommendations, including real examples of how countries can improve transport.
