Urban Transport and Climate Change. Module 5е. Sustainable Transport: A Sourcebook for policy-makers in developing cities

  • Climate change is one of the major global challenges and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from transport are a key contributor to this. In a wider transport sector mitigation strategy, sustainable urban mobility provides a unique opportunity to address climate change while at the same time fostering sustainable development. These include improved air quality and road safety, reduced noise from traffic, increased energy efficiency and productivity and range of other social and economic benefits. This Sourcebook module is primarily focused on climate change mitigation options and provides advice on sustainable low-carbon transport policy instruments, focusing on the city level and relevant national framework policies.
