coherent international networks: Agreement on Main International Traffic Arteries (AGR) Map of E Roads Agreement on Main International Railway Lines (AGC) Agreement on Important International Combined Transport Lines and Related Installations (AGTC) Agreement on Main Inland Waterways of International Importance (AGN) SDGs 8.1, 8.2, 9.1 and 9.4 3 UNECE faciliates border crossings across the region and beyond

The TIR Convention: 74 parties cuts transport times by up to 80 per cent reduced costs by up to 39 per cent Source: IRU 4 Shaping transport systems to support the 2030 Agenda Intermodality contributes to: More efficient transport systems Reduced environmental footprint Need for efficient transport corridors Low border crossing costs Coordination

Intelligent transport systems 5 Multilateral efforts support air pollution reduction Air pollution is a major source of environmental risks, premature deaths and economic costs The Air Convention has: Reduced emissions of a growing number of harmful substances Increased life expectancy by 12 months SDGs 3.4, 3.9 and 12.4 6

Prevention is required to address water-related risks Most disasters are waterrelated More of 60 per cent of global freshwater flow is occurring in transboundary basins Strong case for transboundary cooperation Normative development Operational
