The main objective of this Dialogue was to foster discussion among a diverse group of multi-stakeholder policy makers and private cycling entities towards addressing gaps and challenges related to cycling safety in the country. The Dialogue invited Ms. Jo Yee Yung Fung, an expert from the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UNESCAP) who has been involved in the planning of FIFA 2022 Qatar Transportation Plan, 2010 Winter Olympics Transportation Plan and the Vancouver Public Bike Share Scheme.

The Dialogue came at a juncture where there has been a growing concern on cycling safety on the roads and highways. To this end, a cycling poll was conducted recently whereby the results also helped to identify ways forward to improve cycling policies, regulations and initiatives.
