SUTP

Access to business, health, services, education and other crucial opportunities is becoming difficult in many developing cities due to a deteriorating transport environment. Also, worsening air and noise pollution, decreasing safety levels and overloaded transport systems are having a severe impact on the economic, social life and ecological conditions in a city. City economies today suffer from congestion, overcrowding and lack of accessibility. In many cases public transport systems and facilities for non-motorised transport users such as pedestrians and cyclists are particularly prone to negligence and under-funding. The urban poor who rely on these systems are therefore seriously affected by this neglect and poor urban mobility management. Furthermore, transport problems are tending to worsen with economic development.
To ensure that these issues are tackled successfully SUTP was founded as an initiative that is focusing on the urban transport challenge especially in developing and transition countries. SUTP provides advisory services, participates on international transport- and climate-related conferences and the runs workshops and learning events. Furthermore SUTP published a Sourcebook for Decision-Makers in Developing Cities that addresses the key areas of a sustainable transport policy framework for a developing city.
