La Paz

International Mobility Congress

The Congress in La Paz has illustrated the importance of integrated and intermodal public transport systems, particularly in fast urbanizing cities, where public transport must increasingly compete with privately-owned cars. To share experience, around 50 participants from Bolivia, India and Zimbabwe participated in the International Mobility Congress in La Paz, 1-4 October 2018. The workshop was organized in a joint effort of UN-Habitat, Mi Teleférico and the Ministry of Public Works, Services and Housing, with support from Doppelmayr Seilbahnen GmbH. The workshop underscored the linkages between growing urbanization and expected rise in motorization, while discussing the importance of implementing integrated public transport solutions.
