The General Assembly, in a UN resolution of May 16, 2023, recognizing the important role of safe, inexpensive, affordable and sustainable transport systems for all in promoting sustainable economic growth, improving people's social well-being and strengthening international cooperation and trade between countries, decided to declare November 26 as World Sustainable Transport Day.


The General Assembly called on all interested parties to celebrate World Sustainable Transport Day by holding educational events aimed at increasing public knowledge about sustainable transport, in particular, strengthening intermodal transport, promoting sustainable transport and creating a socially inclusive transport infrastructure.

For its part, in order to ensure the development of sustainable transport in the TRACECA region, the Permanent Secretariat is working in such areas as digitalization, containerization, the introduction of electronic transport documents, including the possibility of using blockchain technology, improving the efficiency of shipping lines, simplifying border crossing procedures and other issues.
