UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has urged the world’s transport ministers to accelerate efforts to combat climate change and “find new green solutions”. 

In a video message released ahead of the annual meeting of transport ministers during their global summit in the German city of Leipzig he said:

“It is time to reshape the world’s transport systems for a cleaner, safer and more sustainable future.”

Ban called sustainable transport “a common thread” linking the upcoming UN Summit in September in New York and the COP21 climate change conference in Paris in December. In New York, world leaders will define a post-2015 development agenda. In Paris, governments will seek to agree on concrete actions to limit the effects of global warming.
