The first "Forum on Urban Mobility and Sustainable Transportation" was held at the Faculty of Engineering and Architecture of the Universidad Autónoma of Santo Domingo (UASD), with the objective of presenting strategies to face the problem of urban mobility and transportation in the Dominican Republic.
Cristina Sánchez, Country Manager in the Dominican Republic and Associated Director of luis vidal + architects, spoke about how, from the conception of the project, in the practice, the urban space is always studied first, giving great importance to mobility and transport. These factors can be decisive for a success or a failure project.
The main objective of the forum was to establish a space for dialogue between the actors involved in urban mobility and transport throughout Latin America and the Caribbean, and its indirect impact on the urban environment.
The event was attended by the Ministry of Public Works and Communications (MOPC) of the Dominican Republic, as well as important Dominican institutions such as the Directorate General of Traffic Safety and Land Transportation (DIGESETT), the National Institute of Transit and Land Transportation (INTRANT) and the Office for the Reordering of Transport (Opret). On the other hand, it also brought together representatives from the industrial, business and academic sectors.
