Sustainable Transportation in Asian cities – For a Greener Globe and Better Life

22 April – 1 May 2019 — Urban transport plays a fundamental role in meeting the objectives of economic competitiveness, social inclusion and sustainable growth. Yet, in many countries, challenges arise around the rapid increase of private vehicles, traffic congestion and poorly functioning public transport systems. This results in inefficiencies, road accidents, air pollution and increasing Green House Gas emissions. Transport has received increasing recognition over the last years few years in the narrative of the global agendas such as the UN Sustainable Development Goals, the Paris Climate Agreements or the New Urban Agenda adopted at Habitat III in Quito, Ecuador in October 2016. The world needs to strive for a new mobility paradigm where “Transport” is seen as a means and not an end itself – the ultimate objective of all transportation being ACCESS to opportunities, goods services and amenities.

The main objective of this course is to help training participants to gain better practical knowledge about the design and management of sustainable transportation models which can be applied in their cities.

The training course was tailored for senior decision makers, policy makers and transport practitioners from Asian cities who work in national and local governments and have direct responsibilities for the planning, design, finance, implementation and management of transport policies, programs and projects.  Those who work in private and academic institutions, as well as NGOs and not-for-profit housing organizations, were also considered to take part in the training course.

The training course was conducted in collaboration with IUTC, Gangwon province and the Urban Pathway project.
