Orientation Programme on Urban Transportation Reforms for Liveable Cities

November 21, 2012

The Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) is organising a three-day orientation programme, ’Urban Transportation Reforms for Liveable Cities,’ in New Delhi from November 21 – 23, 2012 for policy makers from different cities of India and South Asia. The objective of this forum is to promote good regulatory practices in air quality and mobility management. Many Indian and South Asian cities have already begun to develop action plans in response to the national air quality management policies and urban transport policies to achieve clean air and sustainable mobility. These along with the state level transportation and clean air action plans have created the policy opportunity for change. This forum will facilitate interaction with a select group of experts and resource persons to capture the learning in the region as well as demonstrate change through field based case studies. This interactive forum will cover a range of issues including:

  • Challenges of urbanization and mobility crisis
  • Environmental impacts -- air pollution, congestion, public health, energy and climate impacts
  • Challenges of mobility management
  • Strategies to scale up public transport and design multi-modal integration
  • Bus sector reforms
  • Making cities walkable
  • Non-motorised transport
  • Parking policy as a travel demand management strategy
  • Funding public transport
  • Lessons from JNNURM programme
