Sustainable Transport: A Sourcebook for Policy-Makers in Developing Cities

What is the Sourcebook?
This Sourcebook on Sustainable Urban Transport addresses the key areas of a sustainable transport policy framework for a developing city. The Sourcebook consists of 20 modules.

Who is it for?
The Sourcebook is intended for policy-makers in developing cities, and their advisors. This target audience is reflected in the content, which provides policy tools appropriate for application in a range of developing cities.

How is it supposed to be used?
The Sourcebook can be used in a number of ways. It should be kept in one location, and the different modules provided to officials involved in urban transport. The Sourcebook can be easily adapted to fit a formal short course training event, or can serve as a guide for developing a curriculum or other training program in the area of urban transport; avenues GTZ is pursuing.

What are some of the key features?
The key features of the Sourcebook include:

  • A practical orientation, focusing on best practices in planning and regulation and, where possible, successful experience in developing cities.
  • Contributors are leading experts in their fields.
  • An attractive and easy-to-read, colour layout.
  • Non-technical language (to the extent possible), with technical terms explained.
  • Updates via the Internet.
