Secretariat The SLoCaT Secretariat is the administrative body of SLoCaT, overseen by the Board of the SLoCaT Foundation. The SLoCaT Secretariat services both the SLoCaT Partnership and the SLoCaT Foundation.
Organisational structure The SLoCaT Foundation (officially “Stichting Partnership on Sustainable, Low Carbon Transport (SLoCaT) Foundation") was established in August 2014 in The Hague, the Netherlands to enable, facilitate and support the SLoCaT Partnership in promoting sustainable, low carbon transport.

The functioning of the SLoCaT Foundation is overseen by a Board of Directors. Five Board members represent the SLoCaT Partnership and four others represent the Supporters of the SLoCaT Foundation. In July 2019, the members of the SLoCaT Partnership and the supporters of the SLoCaT Foundation elected a new cohort of Board Members to serve for the next three years. The new SLoCaT Board brings together a diverse group of experts in terms of geographical representation and wide-range of experience from transport, energy, and cities sectors.

Description

Description The SLoCaT Partnership on Sustainable, Low Carbon Transport is an international multi-stakeholder partnership that enables knowledge and action towards the implementation of sustainable, low carbon transport, with a focus on land transport and a geographic footprint targeted at developing countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America and Caribbean. SLoCaT develops its mission through knowledge and data analysis, policy advocacy and multi-stakeholder dialogue and coalition building.
Objectives The SLoCaT Partnership aims to promote the integration of sustainable, low carbon transport in global policies on sustainable development and climate change and leverage action in support of the implementation of the global policies.
Activities The Partnership's overarching goal is to mobilize global support to promote sustainable, low carbon transport and thereby reduce the growth of GHG emissions generated by land transport in developing countries and maximize the contribution of transport to poverty eradication and sustainable development.
One or two success stories achieved In alignment with its mission to promote sustainable transport; over the course of a year, SLoCaT Partnership organizes and supports various events focusing on sustainable transport, especially with links to sustainable development and climate change issues. Some of these events like Transport Day are recurring every year. For more information, please see www.slocat.net/

Indicators
Goals Sustainable transport is a cross-cutting theme in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. It supports the achievement of at least 8 of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and makes direct and indirect contributions to at least 13 SDG targets. In addition, transport is directly related to five SDG indicators. The 2030 Agenda encourages member states to submit Voluntary National Reviews (VNRs) to the United Nations High-Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF), which has been convening annually since 2016 under the auspices of the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC). The VNR process aims to facilitate the sharing of experiences among countries, including successes, challenges and lessons learned, with a view to accelerating the implementation of the 2030 Agenda.

Since the first HLPF in 2016, the SLoCaT Partnershiphas been assessing transport references in the VNRs submitted each year. The assessment aims to: - Provide a useful resource for policy-makers to better understand the role of transport in achieving the SDGs; - Outline recommendations to policy-makers on goal-setting, implementing and reporting on sustainable transport progress; - Help the transport community (and other relevant sectors e.g. energy, health) better understand the pattern, gaps and opportunities in reporting sustainable transport in the VNR process.
