Moving towards a low-carbon future requires an accelerated decarbonization of the transport sector, which contributes to 14% of India’s total energy-related emissions. In 2024, Uddeshya aims to spotlight inclusive mobility as a powerful catalyst in decarbonizing transport. Recognizing diverse mobility needs, amplifying marginalized voices, and fostering accessibility for all genders and communities are critical to mitigating the environmental impact of transport systems while ensuring social equity.

Uddeshya is being organized by WRI India, under the aegis of the Forum for Decarbonising Transport, a NITI Aayog-led platform for enabling more ambitious and inclusive transport decarbonisation action. Uddeshya 2024 will showcase a wide array of projects, including an exhibition and an award ceremony to drive inclusivity in the transport sector and recognise people who have contributed significantly to further gender-responsive mobility.
