Urban air pollution, largely caused by transport, leads to the premature death of over 0.5 million people per year, and imposes costs equivalent to about 2% of GDP. Incorporation of environmental issues within an urban transport strategy requires the identification of the main transport generated pollutants and the mobilization of technical, fiscal, and system management controls on fuel and vehicle technology to reduce them.
