Building on the first TKX that took place in Tokyo last May, the Belgrade technical knowledge exchange (TKX) aims to advance resilient transport around the world.
Transportation infrastructure represents a significant public and private investment that is fundamental to the functioning and development of economies and societies. As such, transport investments have been integral to the World Bank’s partnerships with client countries. Since 2002, more than 260,000 kilometers of road were constructed or rehabilitated through World Bank-supported projects. However, these investments are increasingly exposed to disaster and climate hazards, including landslides, flooding, and earthquakes. To manage and reduce the risks these hazards may pose, low- and middle-income countries are seeking new approaches to plan, design, construct, operate, and maintain their transportation systems.
This event will include delegations from 12 different countries.
