Keynote session: Kathrine Vad - Senior Manager at DSS+

The powerful role of transport in achieving sustainability in the sector

Sustainable transport is the future license to operate. Donors, local communities, country regulations will put more presure on organisations to deliver sustianable transport. It is not a nice to have or an add on. It is part of how you operate. It is part of every decision you make. And transport is under your direct control. So easier to realise positive impact.


So how do people engage with this topic? Why would people make the right decisions? Why do we do what we do, even if they realise it might not be the right decision? And how do we operationalise our commitments, our ambitions? Join us for this inspiring and thought-provoking Keynote session on day 2 to learn more!

15.30 - 16.15 - Choose from any of these sessions: 

  1. Pierre Cuny - Product Manager - Chef de Produit at CLS Session: Humanitarian activity areas detection based on vehicle position data Offices, warehouses, refugee camps, temporary areas… All these areas are important for the smooth running of your humanitarian activities. But how accurate are their positions in your geographic information system (GIS)?  Accuracy of location of these areas is crucial, especially in a crisis situation. In this session, discover how CLS can use GPS positions of vehicles of your fleet to detect and update regularly location of Humanitarian activity areas.

  2. Rebecca Lewin - Senior Associate at Fleet Forum Session: ESAT - transforming our approaches to environmental self assessment Fleet Forum, in partnership with hulo, and with support from the European Commission and CDCS launched its new Environmental Self-Assessment tool: Fleet and Transport Management.  In the race to meet 2030 environmental goals, aid and development organisations are stepping up and committing to substantial CO2 reductions. Transport and fleet management are key areas where significant reductions can be achieved within this timeframe. Achieving these reductions requires adopting new approaches to transport, mobility, and fleet management. Using ESAT will allow you to identify your areas for improvement.

  3. Marta Kucharski - Waste Management Specialist WREC Session: Decision making in fleet waste management The Decision Making in Fleet Waste Management session will share key steps to manage fleet waste in humanitarian operations. Even when organizations are based in remote areas with no facilities around or operating in acute emergency contexts, a decision-making process based on best practices from humanitarian organizations can be followed to minimize the environmental impacts of fleet waste.

Fleet Manager of the Year Award - Ceremony

16.45 - 17.30 - Choose from these sessions:

  1. Cyril Pierrot - Project Coordinator at Fleet Forum / Miranda Shami - Administrative Officer at WHO Jordan and Charles Motieriondieki - at ICRC Session: Exploring applicability of battery EVs in the middle east and Africa: 2 years of project findings Two years exploring the applicability of Battery Electrical Vehicles in the Middle East and Africa between: a review of project findings. Following 2 years drawing learnings and collecting data from the 36 Battery electric vehicles (BEV) that our project partners ICRC, UNHCR, WHO, CRS, NRC and UNDP have placed in their fleets in the middle east and in Africa, Fleet Forum has recently published the report Battery Electric Vehicles: what does it solve ? and its annexes. In this session we will review the main project findings around the BEV life cycle (adoption, utilisation and end-of life) with insights such as the brands and model procured, the actual utilisation challenges, total cost of ownership and break-even point against an internal combustion engine vehicle…. We will also look into the practical challenges faced by partner agencies and the risks leaning behind and unthoughtful electrification, as well as into the recommendations and guidance we have put together for the humanitarian sector. Since 2022, Cyril has managed the Electric Vehicles project and authored the BEV report. He is contributing to other Fleet Forum sustainability-related projects may they be hands-on like the ‘Vehicle sharing blueprint in Lebanon and CAR’, or content development related like the ‘Greenme platform’ or the ‘Environment Self-Assessment Tool’.

  2. Stefano Nicolai - Head of UN Mobility Session: UN Mobility - powered by WFP: Advancing carpooling to become the new norm in passenger mobility and the smart, innovative way to do more with less in a challenging funding context. UN Mobility of the UN Booking Hub, powered by WFP, continues to work towards supporting the efficiency roadmap, particularly at a time when the challenging funding context and financial constraints, are impacting the ability to assist the increasing number of those in need. The humanitarian sector is required to do more with less, thinking innovatively and exploiting all possible efficiencies. Greater collaboration through inter-agency carpooling will allow to use limited resources as efficiently and effectively as possible as every dollar saved can be redirected to core missions. UN Mobility, powered by WFP, with 13 partnering Agencies in 106 countries, a fleet of 8,000 UN vehicles and 2.8M passengers served to date, contributed to USD 5.1 million of efficiency gains in 2023 alone across the UN system. Accelerating the change, by swiftly scaling up UN Mobility and inter-agency collaboration through carpooling across the entire system will unlock and maximize efficiencies for all. The current financial constraints representing a catalyst in accelerating the adoption and global roll-out. The session will focus on UN Mobility’s journey to date and on the obstacles, resistances and challenges faced in rolling out the initiative, with the ambition of having carpooling become the new smarter and cost-efficient norm in passenger mobility.
