UNECEThe United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) was set up in 1947 by ECOSOC. It is one of five regional commissions of the United Nations. Climate change is at the top of UN priorities and has become a challenge for many organizations and fora dealing with climate change mitigation and adaptation. UNECE concentrates much of its efforts on :

– Innovative vehicle technologies, advanced engine management systems and efficient vehicle powertrains;
– An improved transport infrastructure together with Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) to avoid traffic congestion and to foster the use of intermodal transport (road, rail and waterways);
– Consumer information (campaigns for eco-driving , use of public transport and modal transport etc.);
