APP at the United Nations

On May 13, APP's Visiting Fellow Michael Davidson gave a speech at United Nations Headquarters in New York during the 18th Session of the Commission on Sustainable Development.

His address at a high-level round table segment on sustainable transportation focused on the need for reliable transportation systems in developing countries. Lack of these systems disproportionately affects youth and children in how they access basic services such as health and education, and impedes the attainment of the second Millennium Development Goal on universal primary education.
