Defining Sustainable Mobility, Indicators and Targets

  1. 1. Defining SustainableMobility, Indicators and Targets Presentation by Michael Replogle to Transforming Transportation January 26, 2012
  2. 2. Goal: Achieve sustainable transport thatenables universal access to safe, clean, and affordable mobility. Social Economic Environmental
  3. 3. Targets & Indicators at Different Scales Project & Plan & Nation Portfolio RegionChallenges of Often best for Optimal scale toconsidering evaluating large consider systemsystem-wide programs and impacts forimpacts, induced system policies metropolitandemand plans/programs
  4. 4. Environment & Public Health GoalsEnsure global transport greenhouse gas emissions and transport sector fossil fuel consumption: (a) peak by 2020 (b) are cut by 40+ percent by 2050 compared to 2005 levels (c) ensure transport contributes to timely attainment of healthful air quality in all cities
  5. 5. Possible Indicators• Transport-related pollution• Progress towards creating & attaining pollution control plans• Number of days cities in non- attainment of WHO Air Quality Guidelines (PM, NOx, Ozone)• Share of population exposed to unhealthful air quality• Share of funding focused on projects that reduce pollution• Is funding tied to progress?
  6. 6. Possible Indicators• Annual fossil fuel consumption • per person for personal transport • per ton freight • by mode• Related GHGs• Vehicle fleet size• In-use fleet fuel efficiency• Share of funding focused on mitigation• Is funding tied to progress?
  7. 7. Possible Indicators• Vehicle-km traveled by mode• Mode share: trips• Mode share: passenger-km• Mode share: ton-km• Vehicle occupancy• Vehicle load factors
  8. 8. Public Health: Safety GoalSupport the Decade of Action for Road Safety (2011-20) andcut traffic-related deaths in half by 2025
  9. 9. Possible Indicators• Annual traffic fatalities• Share of funding focused on traffic safety• Are managers/agencies rewarded based on traffic safety progress achievement?
  10. 10. Mobility & Access GoalEnsure universal access to sustainable transport thoughsupport for safe, affordable public transport and safe,attractive facilities for walking and bicycling.
  11. 11. Possible Indicators• Mode shares• Daily time spent in travel and share of household income spent on transport by poorest 20%• Are plans/programs/projects evaluated for distribution of benefits and burdens?• Is funding tied to performance? 45% 42% 40% Share of household income spent 35% on transportation US 2000 30% 26% 25% 21% 20% 17% 15% 12% 10% 5% 0% 0 to $13,060 $13,061 to $25,218 $25,219 to $41,492 $41,493 to $67,516 $67,517 or higher Income Quintile
  12. 12. Possible Indicators• Proportion of urban roadways with safe walking & cycling facilities• Proportion of population within 1 km of public transport• Ratio of traffic deaths amongst wealthiest 20% to poorest 20%• Share of spending on walking, biking, public transport
  13. 13. ImplementationMDBs, aid agencies, countries, cities: Adopt and monitor (a) sustainable transport targets, (b) goals to advance equitable access for all, and report on these targets and goals.
  14. 14. Implementation• Quantify sustainable transport benchmarks• Collaborate in defining metrics• Advance methodologies to evaluate investments, frame alternatives analysis, & package initiatives• Work group being formed under Partnership for Sustainable Low Carbon Transport• Mainstreaming sustainability in road investments, broader transport investment programs
