PSUTA: City Case Studies

The Partnership for Sustainable Urban Transport in Asia (PSUTA), a Clean Air Initiative for Asian Cities (CAI-Asia) pilot program funded by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida) through the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and EMBARQ, the World Resources Institute's (WRI) Center for Transport and the Environment, conducted case studies in Hanoi (Viet Nam), Pune (India), and Xi'an (PRC). The aim of the case studies was to develop sustainable urban transport indicators that each city can follow to create a medium term sustainable transport strategy.


The project involved the development of key indicators of sustainable urban transport throughout Asia. Emphasizing a quantitative analysis of factors affecting access to transportation, traffic safety and air quality, these indicators were the basis of the city case studies. City briefing meetings have already been held in Hanoi and Xi'an. The city briefing in Pune is scheduled to take place in March 17.

The case studies were conducted in 2004-2005 and upon completion of the case studies, project closing workshops have been held in each partner city:
