  • 2. ENERGY and TRANSPORT • “As the share of the world’s population living in cities grows to nearly 70 percent by 2050 and energy consumption for transport in cities is expected to double, the need for efficient, affordable, safe and high-capacity transport solutions will become more acute,” IEA Executive Director Maria van der Hoeven
  • 3. ENERGY and TRANSPORT • critical steps to improve the efficiency of urban transport systems are needed not only for energy security reasons, but also to: 1 .mitigate the numerous negative climate, 2. noise, 3. air pollution, 4.congestion and economic impacts of rising urban transport volumes IEA Executive Director Maria van der Hoeven photocreditL:anatarais
  • 4. ENERGY and TRANSPORT • the aim of planning policies and urban design solutions must be to reduce the need for movement using private motor car. Photo credit:angine
  • 5. ENERGY and TRANSPORT • Planning and designing urban forms for the reduced need for mobility is a longer-term solution to the problems facing society. Photo credit:angine
  • 6. ENERGY and TRANSPORT • It depends upon individuals gradually changing their lifestyle to one which is less dependent on the private car for mobility. Photo credit:angine
  • 7. ENERGY and TRANSPORT • It was thirty years ago that limitations on the use of the private motor car must be imposed in order to safeguard the local environment from : – noxious fumes, – noise and visual degradation – to reducing the stress being placed on the climate by greenhouse gases.

  • 8. ROAD TRAFFIC AND POLLUTION • The city’s transportation system cannot be solved by building more roads because such a formula will not in the end solve the problem. Photo credit:feedio
  • 9. ROAD TRAFFIC AND POLLUTION Photo credit:railwaypro • The need for city’s movement relying on greater use of : • Public transport, • cycling and • walking (for any necessary mobility) Photo credit:cyclingresourcecentre Photo credit:railwaypro
  • 10. Eight objectives for achieving a sustainable transport policy (The Royal Commission on Environmental Pollution ,1994) • (1) To ensure that an effective transport policy at all levels of government is integrated with land use policy and gives priority to minimizing the need for transport and increasing the proportion of trips by environmentally less damaging modes. • (2) To achieve standards of air quality that will prevent damage to human health and the environment. photocreditL:CBS
  • 11. Eight objectives for achieving a sustainable transport policy (The Royal Commission on Environmental Pollution ,1994) • (3) To improve the quality of life, particularly in towns and cities, by reducing the dominance of cars and lorries and providing alternative means of access. • (4) To increase the proportions of personal travel and freight transport by environmentally less damaging modes and to make the best use of existing infrastructure. photocreditL:NYcity
  • 12. Eight objectives for achieving a sustainable transport policy (The Royal Commission on Environmental Pollution ,1994) • (5) To halt the loss of land to transport infrastructure in areas of conservation, cultural, scenic or amenity value, unless the use of land for that purpose has been shown to be the best practicable environmental option. • (6) To reduce carbon dioxide emissions from transport. photocreditL: befantastic
  • 13. Eight objectives for achieving a sustainable transport policy (The Royal Commission on Environmental Pollution ,1994) • (7) To reduce substantially the demands which transport infrastructure and the vehicle industry place on nonrenewable materials. • (8) To reduce noise nuisance from transport. photocreditL: evolution.skf
