  • Abstract:
    This conference "Is Rail on Track?" was organised by the OECD Environment Directorate and the International Union of Railways (UIC) and hosted by the Swedish National Railway Administration, Banverket (BV). It sought to address barriers to the implementation of EST Guidelines and explore policy options to overcome them, focusing on rail's contribution to EST. The objectives of the conference were: to address present and future demands for rail transport in the context of progress towards EST; to highlight innovative solutions, promising options and approaches in the fields of technology, mobility services and freight logistics; and to provide new insights and to highlight opportunities for business and industry in the development and deployment of sustainable transport systems by examining practical examples and innovations in passenger and freight movement from different OECD countries. The conclusions and lessons learned from the conference provided the basis for developing the Eskilstuna Declaration on Rail Transport which was discussed, revised and adopted at the conference. Conference participants believe that widespread use of the Declaration will help keep rail on track towards achieving EST. 78p.
