United Nations international transport agreements and conventions

Transport is a key sector for sustainable development. It plays an essential role in the economic development and social well-being of countries but also has a major impact on the environment. As described in detail throughout this review, transport is indeed vital for the functioning of economic activities, for the production and distribution of goods, as well as for trade. It also plays a role in reducing imbalances between regions and for their integration. Transport affects the everyday lives of populations, their safety, their health and the environment. Governments have a major role in developing transport by developing infrastructures and establishing a regulatory framework within which transport services can develop efficiently and under the best possible conditions of safety and protection of the environment.
