Transport and Climate Change: Module 5e, Sustainable Transport: A Sourcebook for Policy-makers in Developing Cities

Greenhouse gas emissions from transport are a key contributor to global climate change. In addressing the impacts of climate change through sustainable transport instruments, cities are also able to benefit from a range of co-benefits, including improved air quality, reduced noise from traffic, increased road safety, and a range of social and economic benefits. This Sourcebook module focuses on the sustainable transport instruments available that will help achieve both reductions in greenhouse gas emissions and co-benefits. The module will discuss how decision-maker and administrations may implement and finance these instruments.
