CityNet Infrastructure Cluster meeting and XXXII KLRTC Workshop on Urban Transportation

The CityNet Infrastructure Cluster co-leader, Kuala Lumpur City Hall hosted the 2018 CityNet Infrastructure Cluster Meeting and the XXXII  session of the Kuala Lumpur Regional Training Center (KLRTC) workshop focusing on “Sustainable Urban Transportation for the New Urban Agenda” from July 24-26.

Kuala Lumpur is the current infrastructure cluster co-leader, elected at the 2017 CityNet Congress.

The Infrastructure Cluster meeting is held for all Infrastructure Cluster members to prepare a set of strategic actions, which include the draft plan of cluster activities that is in line with the four year strategic direction of the cluster and CityNet. The main goals of the meeting were:

  1. To construct cooperative relationships among Infrastructure Cluster members by sharing information, knowledge, and technologies
  2. To exchange knowledge and ideas of infrastructure challenges and development among CityNet members
  3. To build the cluster’s plans and programme activities for the rest of this year and 2019

In conjunction, through the KLRTC workshop, participants were able to learn successful examples of the policies, challenges, and solutions for urban mobility implemented by CityNet members particularly Seoul and Kuala Lumpur as the infrastructure cluster leader and co-leader. Participants had a chance to hop on the recently expanded MRT – SBK Line.

This year’s KLRTC workshop is the XXXII session and the idea of selecting urban transportation as the focus area is that developing, supporting and promoting sustainable mobility solutions in dense urban areas is a key challenge for cities worldwide especially in the developing countries.

The rapid convergence of information technology and transportation systems offer unique opportunities for innovation, while promising to reduce costs and to increase the convenience, attractiveness, and diversification mode of public transport in rapid urbanization. It is also in line with the CityNet Medium Term Plan approved at the 2017 Congress in Colombo.
