Sustainable Transport

The continuous increase in the number of vehicles in Asia is one of the major factors behind the growing problem of air pollution. Fortunately, technical experts and policy makers have been working together to develop solutions that will minimize the adverse environmental and health impacts of private vehicle ownership. Land use planning, bus rapid transit (BRT), pedestrianization schemes, and the promotion of non-motorized forms of transportation (NMT) are some of the strategies that fall within the definition of "sustainable transport."

The Partnership for Sustainable Urban Transport in Asia (PSUTA) has been collecting, reviewing, organizing, and disseminating information on sustainable transport in Asia. The review of existing documents is one of the project's key outputs. Sustainable urban transport is a relatively new field and there needs to be a systematic overview of the kind of information that is available. Decision makers need to have easy access to this information, which unfortunately is either missing or fragmented.

The main rationale of this exercise is to document resources on sustainable urban transport in Asia and make them available to a wider audience through this website. This information can potentially be used in policy formulation and development planning to create a paradigm shift towards improved transport sustainability.
