MobiliseYourCity, a partnership among cities all over the globe for integrated urban development planning in emerging and develping countries, has recently issued a publication on monitoring and reporting GHG emissions in urban transport.

The car industry is on a collision course with action on climate climate change, said Greenpeace Germany transport expert, Andree Böhling. The transport sector will soon have to do without oil. Only manufacturers that rapidly switch to developing clean and efficient alternatives will survive this transition.

Cars are a major source of greenhouse gas pollution in Australian cities, the latest report explains. Transport is Australia’s third largest source of greenhouse gas emissions, with emissions from transport increasing nearly 60% since 1990, more than any other sector. Cars are responsible for roughly half of all transport emissions.

Most developed countries now implicitly or explicitly aim to promote more compact urban forms, as compactness is associated with a wide range of positive effects: increases in productivity due to agglomeration economies, travel time savings, and a smaller ecological footprint due to lower energy and land consumption.

Between 2014 and 2050, India is projected to add 404 million urban dwellers and the number of rural residents is expected to decline by 52 million.

Urban transit bus fleets are a significant source of air pollutant emissions, including black carbon, a harmful ultrafine particle and potent short-lived climate pollutant. Transit bus fleets are therefore an important target for accelerated transitions to clean engine technologies and fuels.

The current overview report is part of the output report for the project “Supporting Smart Urban Mobility and Built Environment in Indian Cities” under Grant Ref: G 15 SSEF-140 , implemented during period of October 2015 to January 2017.

The Delhi government has come out with a draft parking policy which proposes checks on multiple ownership and roadside parking of vehicles through taxes and charges, in view of better management of limited parking space available in the city.

The Union Urban Development Ministry has formulated ‘National Transit Oriented Development (TOD) Policy’ to address the challenges of urbanisation. The policy framework aims to promote living close to mass urban transit corridors like the Metros, monorail and bus rapid transit (BRT) corridors.

This draft blueprint document for an EU Cycling Strategy is the first time ever that, in a consolidated manner, all EU policies that have a direct or indirect link to cycling, have been
