This document is the annual European Union (EU) emission inventory report to the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) Convention on Long-range Transboundary Air Pollution (CLRTAP).

This report released by the International Energy Agency says air pollution has become a major public health crisis leading to around 6.5 million deaths each year, with “many of its root causes and cures” found in the energy industry.

Transport Research Wing (TRW) of the Ministry of Road Transport & Highways being the nodal agency for providing information/data on various aspects of road and road transport sector brings out every year report on `Road Accidents in India".

The European Union’s 2030 climate and energy framework requires the transport, building and agriculture sectors to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to 30 percent below a 2005 baseline by 2030.

Rapidly growing transport activities in urban areas are a big challenge for mitigating climate change. This paper provides a detailed approach for setting-up an emissions monitoring system for urban passenger transport in Chinese cities.

Public Transportation serves as a cheap and convenient mode of transport for all classes of society, saves fuel and reduces congestion and pollution. It is vital to economic development & social integration of the country. One such mode of Public Transportation in India is the State Road Transport Undertakings (SRTUs).

Road transport is an important source of both greenhouse gases and air pollutants. Despite improvements in vehicle efficiencies over past decades, today the sector is responsible for almost one fifth of Europe's greenhouse gas emissions.

The objective of this paper is to review the multiple impacts on health as a result of road transport in urban areas.
