Real policy is not defensive short-term emergency measures but something proactive spanning multiple years, and acting fast, local and through multiple agencies. Every Diwali, a billion people in India wake up to the news of smog-ridden cities in the aftermath of celebratory fireworks.

To hold global average temperature increase to 1.5°C, global CO2 emissions need to reach net-zero by 2050, with rapid decarbonisation in all sectors. Global transport emissions have continued to steadily increase, with transport emissions accounting for 24 percent of direct CO2 emissions from fuel combustion.

As at Spring 2020, 35 global cities have set out to establish a significant area of their city as zero emission by 2030 as part of their commitment to the C40 Green and Healthy Streets Declaration. This document analyzes the approaches being taken by some leading cities to implement a zero emission area (ZEA).

Transport is traditionally a male-dominated sector. The realization that the sector and its subsystems have been conceived, designed, and matured from either a male-oriented or a gender-neutral perspective is thus unsurprising.

Injuries are the leading cause of preventable death in children and young people, and of preventable years of life lost up to age 65.

Public transport which include buses and metro plays major role in people mobility in urban and rural areas of India. Presently, around 10 cities are having operational metro network with a total network of more than 700 kilometers and about 525 metro stations.

Delhi is being recognized for its new initiative and a new thinking towards education, health services, social welfare and social security measures taken to improve the standard of living and quality of life of the common man.

How people and goods get around our cities is undergoing considerable change. As new mobility options are introduced, cities and communities are trying to lower emissions, improve safety and increase affordability and accessibility of transport networks.
