Our Vision

To achieve this, the following systemic transformations in land transport are needed. They will also leverage wider socio-economic transformations.

We define equitable, healthy, green and resilient transport and mobility systems based on the positive interactions with the UN 2030 Agenda and its Sustainable Development Goals.

SLOCAT Vision for Transport Transformations

Transport connects people and prosperous societies, and works for them as a system of multiple modes and services.
Cities are compact and managed to maximise access to socio-economic opportunities, health and equity for all.
Rural and interurban mobility services are low in emissions and focus on users’ needs to improve access.
Walking, cycling and public transport get priority.
Well-managed transport demand reduces kilometres and car use.
Electrification drives low carbon land transport and puts the most sustainable modes first.
Digital technologies increase access and transport efficiency.
Pricing and fiscal policy guide market forces and, together with finance, channel public and private funds towards the most sustainable transport services.
Freight systems efficiently combine different low-carbon modes, share capacities and rely on sustainable first and last mile delivery.
Industry, trade and transport are shaped to support a circular economy, local value creation, and short and resilient logistic chains.
Transport systems and services are resilient in extreme weather events and other shocks.

SLOCAT Theory of Change

The SLOCAT Theory of Change serves as a compass for our work and is aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Paris Agreement on Climate Change.
