The 2010 high-level Policy Segment of the UNECE Inland Transport Committee(*), organized at the occasion of the seventy-second session of the Committee, was dedicated to the issue of “Sustainable Transport Development: The Case of Inland Water Transport”.

The Inland Transport Committee (ITC) is the highest policy-making body of the UNECE in the field of transport. In the course of the last 60 years ITC has provided a pan-European intergovernmental forum, where 56 UNECE member countries come together to forge tools for economic cooperation and establish international legal instruments aimed at developing efficient, harmonized and integrated, safe and sustainable pan-European transport systems. The annual session of the Committee brings together around two hundred participants from UNECE Member States, European Union, international and European transport organizations and NGOs.
