From Defining to Implementing Sustainable Transport

By Cornie Huizenga, Secretary General, Partnership on Sustainable, Low Carbon Transport (SLoCaT)

Millions of people around the world lack proper access to jobs, markets, schools, hospitals and other essential services, and better transport is a crucial element to improve economic and social development. Yet, transport is responsible for 1.24 million traffic fatalities per year, as well as high levels of urban air pollution and congestion in many cities.
