Training programme: Revamping parking management and accessibility in cities

Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) invites participation in its four-day Training Programme on Revamping parking management and accessibility in cities scheduled on November 29 to December 2, 2022 at Anil Agarwal Environment Training Institute (AAETI) located at Nimli (near Alwar), Tijara, Rajasthan. This programme represents our initiative to promote good regulatory practices in city planning and implementation strategies through knowledge sharing and capacity building.

Cities are in the grip of explosive motorisation. Escalating vehicle growth not only contributes the maximum to ambient air pollution, but growing congestion in cities. In addition increasing vehicle numbers demand more parking spaces. Limited urban space in cities is already a scarce resource. Therefore, it is pertinent that cities manage space more efficiently, capture land value through effective vehicle restraint measures and improve accessibility. Very often, a developed area has reduced accessibility in general and also hindered access to public transport. Improving accessibility, street design and parking management are urban development strategies that are not standalone solutions, but an aggregated approach to address urban development issues. 

City administrations around the world have time and again acknowledged the need and urgency of implementing travel demand management measures in urban development. Measures such as parking management, congestion pricing etc. are more common. Policies and guidance tools such as National Urban Transport Policy, National Transit Oriented Development policy, Delhi Parking rules, UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, National Mission on Sustainable Habitat among others guide sustainable development in cities. In addition several standards notified under Model Town and Country Planning Act guide to design homes, streets and roads. Collectively these drive sustainable development. 

This training programme is designed to sensitise, guide, build knowledge and regulatory capacity of government officials from the concerned implementing agencies and also support implementation of the clean air action plans by about 132 cities under the National Clean Air Programme (NCAP) as well as the plans of 42 million plus cities for utilisation of funds disbursed by the XVth Finance Commission for clean air action. It will cover policies and practices, major urban development concepts and implementation challenges, demonstrate and showcase change through case studies and aims to educate and take right steps in the process towards implementation.             

Course highlights: This training will be conducted using different medium and methods – lectures/presentations, resource material, class exercises, audio visuals etc. and cover the following:
