Nommon participates in Transforming Transportation 2024

Luisa de Moura Chaves, Ingeniera de Desarrollo de Negocio de Nommon en Latinoamérica, participó en la vigesimoprimera edición de Transforming Transportation de la mano de ICEX España.

On March 19th, the twenty-first edition of the Transforming Transportation congress kicked off in Washington, organised by the World Bank and the World Resources Institute (WRI), under this year’s theme “Mobilising finance for climate action.” For the second consecutive year, Nommon participated hand in hand with ICEX Spain Export and Investment, sponsor of one of the congress sessions and coordinator, alongside the Economic and Commercial Office in Washington, of the participation of various Spanish companies with innovative solutions aimed at promoting sustainable mobility.

Luisa de Moura Chaves, Business Development Engineer at Nommon for Latin America, travelled to Washington to attend the presentations and debates held during the two-day congress and participate in the working sessions organised by ICEX. With a focus on decarbonisation, resilience to disruptive events, and the adoption of new technologies to achieve sustainability goals, Luisa explained how reliable and updated data from innovative data sources,such as anonymised mobile data records, can support decision-making on the design of more sustainable and accessible transportation systems, and shared Nommon’s experience developing software-as-a-service tools based on big data for the continuous monitoring of mobility patterns.

The ICEX stand at Transforming Transportation was a space to meet with public representatives and multilateral organisations, display the solutions of the participating Spanish companies’, and share sustainable mobility projects implemented in Europe and Latin America. Two of the projects presented by Nommon were the study for the Spanish Ministry of Transport, which generates daily mobility indicators using Nommon’s Mobility Insights solution, and the monitoring of public transport demand carried out for the World Bank to understand how travel patterns in different Latin American cities changed during the pandemic, which combined Mobility Insights and Transit Insights solutions.

As in previous years, in addition to the plenary sessions—which in this edition brought together over a thousand on-site attendees and 1,800 remote participants—, Transforming Transportation was organised around several technical sessions for knowledge sharing and the identification of collaboration opportunities. These sessions focused on promoting various strategies for financing sustainable mobility and debating on new trends in the sector (such as the digitalisation of transport or new decarbonisation projects), the challenges and opportunities offered by new technologies, such as artificial intelligence, to achieve climate goals, and the importance of measuring the success of projects by their real impact in terms of sustainability, resilience, and accessibility. The technical session organised by ICEX, “Sustainable Cities for a Livable Planet,” focused on the role of cities as key actors in driving the transition towards a more sustainable model and the need to collaborate and coordinate initiatives among different entities and sectors.
