World Bank’s Transforming Transportation Initiative Conference 2024

Submission Deadline: March 22, 2024, 5:00 p.m. ET.


Transforming Transportation, the annual transport conference
organized by the World Bank and the World Resources Institute, is back for its 21st edition! Set to take place in Washington, DC and online on March 19-20, the conference will bring together over 2,000 policymakers and practitioners from around the world. This year’s edition will focus on “Mobilizing Finance for Climate Action” —a key priority for transport given the sector’s growing carbon footprint and vulnerability to climate change. 

The initiative is geared toward young innovators aged 18-35 who are passionate about development and transport. This year, Transforming Transportation will feature young panelists in the likes of Crystal Asige, Senator of the Republic of Kenya and award-winning musician. 

To participate in the initiative, you must:

  1. Register here to attend the conference. Attendance in person is free of charge but interested participants can join online if they’re unable to travel to Washington, D.C.
  2. Attend all plenary sessions of the conference in person or stream them online. 
  3. Draft a blog (800 words max.) showcasing your solution to unlock financing for greener, safer, inclusive, and more resilient mobility. The solution proposed needs to be innovative and scalable, with the potential for clear and measurable impacts. If the solution has a geographic focus, it should cover locations/countries/regions that are currently working with the World Bank.
  4. Submit your blog. A link will be provided during the breakout session titled ‘Creating jobs through youth-led innovations in green mobility’ with additional instructions on how to submit your blog. This session is currently scheduled for March 20 from 2:30-3:30 p.m. ET. Submissions will be accepted until March 22, 2024, 5:00 p.m. ET.

Section Criteria

  • Two submissions will be selected for publication on the World Bank Blog platform and a group of participants will be invited to a hybrid session with a senior transport expert at the World Bank to share their solutions and engage on the most pressing challenges in the transport sector.
