This paper explores the opportunity for behavioural or demand side orientated measures (e.g modal shift) to play an important role in low carbon transitions of the transport system. For the first time, endogenous mode choice is integrated into a whole energy systems model, ESME, by representing mode speed, travel time budgets, infrastructure costs, and maximum rates of modal shift.

This new book by John Whitelegg at the Stockholm Environment Institute sets out a rationale for a transformation of the mobility landscape and argues that sustainable transport options simply cannot thrive in a world that remains wedded to more mobility and the manifestations of that cultural and political bias (subsidy, infrastructure and a lack of attention to death, injury, air pollution, climate change and social justice).

New research from the New Climate Economy finds that investing in public and low emission transport, building efficiency, and waste management in cities could generate savings with a current value of US$17 trillion by 2050. The report offers numerous examples of cities that have achieved or can achieve economic benefits from green investments and demonstrates how doing so could also reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 3.7 Gt CO2e per year by 2030, more than the current annual emissions of India.

The EVIDENCE project aims to provide advice to decision-makers on the economic, social and environmental benefits of sustainable mobility policies, measures, projects and initiatives. It operates by compiling this information and presenting it tailor-made to the target audience: transport policy decision-makers and practitioners at the local and national level in Europe. It is hoped that this will encourage greater investment in sustainable transport and address a fundamental obstacle to the effective implementation of Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs).

A blog posting by TheCityFix highlights how cities played a key role scaling up climate change solutions and building momentum for climate action at last Tuesday’s UN Climate Summit. The blog reports that there was unprecedented focus on cities and the transport sector at climate change conferences, with city leaders committed to new actions to promote sustainable urban development and low carbon transport systems.
