Introduction

ikegami

The Inland Transport Committee (ITC) is the UN platform for inland transport to help efficiently address global and regional needs in inland transport. In the course of the last 72 years, together with its subsidiary bodies, the ITC has provided an  intergovernmental forum, where UNECE and United Nations Member States come together to forge tools for economic cooperation and negotiate and adopt international legal instruments on inland transport.

These legal instruments are considered indispensable for developing efficient, harmonized and integrated, safe and sustainable inland transport systems.

Highlights

The 83rd annual session of the Inland Transport Committee took place from 23-26 February 2021. This year’s session enabled critical decision-making by key transport stakeholders in response to the global emergency of unseen proportions in peacetime triggered by COVID-19. Member States as well as transport leaders came together to take strategic decisions on addressing the systemic weaknesses that compromised global supply chains and disrupted economic activity and the transport of goods and people worldwide. The Committee’s agenda and decision-making also covered cutting-edge areas such as road safety, autonomous vehicles, and transport digitalization.
