image010This illustrated report provides a rich collection of images of sustainable urban transport and mobility initiatives from cities around the world which are represented in the United Nations Advisory Committee of Local Authorities (UNACLA). The collection considers the current transport situation and challenges faced by each city - this includes high levels of energy consumption, carbon dioxide emissions, congestion, road casualties, urban sprawl, and social exclusion. The report also describes how these cities have implemented creative solutions aimed at improved urban planning, traffic demand management, public transit, non-motorized transport, streetscape design, road planning, low-emission vehicles, and logistics planning. The ultimate goal for each of these cities is to improve the quality of urban life for its citizens.
