A Framework for Achieving Sustainable Mobility |

A Framework for Achieving Sustainable Mobility

Synopsis:

Sustainable urban transport is essential for the sustainability of cities as a whole. To achieve this? understanding the main reasons for poor urban transport systems is essential. An important next step is working out a process for implementing sustainable transport systems in Asian cities.

In here presentation, Sophie Punte will discuss the mutually reinforcing factors contributing to unsustainable transport systems in Asian cities which are:

  • Absence of a city development strategy
  • Unsustainable transport policies driven by meeting demand by creating additional infrastructures
  • Ineffective transport planning by the experts, thus disenfranchising users, residents and other stakeholders
  • Little implementation due to a disconnect between plans and available budgets
  • Little data about the success or failure of implementation in achieving policy goals
  • Governance problems where politics won over technocratic advice.

She will then discuss this proposed framework for achieving sustainable urban transport in Asian cities.
