Sustainable transport is fundamental to progress in realizing the promise of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and in achieving the 17 Sustainable Development Goals. It is also essential to our efforts to fight climate change, reduce air pollution and improve road safety.

This book addresses the links between transport and sustainable urban development, from an analysis of the global picture to issuesin transport and energy intensity, public policy and the institutional and organisational constraints on change. The central part of the book explores these links in more detail at city level, covering land use and development, economic measures, and the role that technology can play. The final part looks for inspiration from events in developing countries and the means by which we can move from the unsustainable present to a more sustainable future.
