  18. 18. Emerging Sustainable Transport Partnership Opportunities • BRT Alliance • Sustainable Low Carbon Urban Transport • International Railways • Urban Electric Mobility • Green Freight • Planned City Extensions and Infill Development • Compact of Mayors I challenge you to bring to the Summit bold pledges. Innovate, scale-up, cooperate and deliver concrete action that will close the emissions gap and put us on track for an ambitious legal agreement through the UNFCCC process.
