In responding to COVID-19,  the transport sector  witnessed a variety of  short-term actions and policy measures across  high, middle and low income countries. For these short-term actions to be more effective in the longer term, transport and health sectors need an integrated approach.   With support from the HVT Programme, TRL has prepared guidelines providing practical guidance  for the sector – and for LMICs more specifically – on how to make transport resilient to pandemics. This webinar is the first in a series of thematic webinars being organised in the framework of the Global Transport Knowledge Partnership (gTKP).
