2. In this session or workshop, participants will be able to identify the potential impacts that key technologies could produce on the key stakeholders in supply chains 

3. In this session or workshop, participants will be able to identify the potential impacts that key technologies could produce relating to land-use patterns 

4. In this session or workshop, participants will be able to get an idea about the approaches which that transportation and land-use agencies could adopt to foster beneficial impacts and mitigate negative impacts from these technologies
