El crecimiento rápido, no planificado y descoordinado de las ciudades ha puesto seriamente en peligro los sistemas de transporte existentes y ha incrementado significativamente el desafío de crear futuros sistemas de transporte, especialmente en los países en desarrollo. Es en los países en desarrollo, principalmente en las áreas urbanas, donde el mayor crecimiento del parque automotor se ha visto en los últimos años y se espera para los años venideros. Los impactos ambientales y sociales de estas tendencias son significativos ya que están directamente relacionados con la calidad de vida y la productividad urbana. Estos impactos incluyen congestión, consumo energético, contaminación del aire, carencias de seguridad y accidentes de tráfico. Por ende, las cuestiones de transporte urbano son de suma importancia para apoyar las exigencias de movilidad en las ciudades de rápido crecimiento y necesitan nuevas aproximaciones. Sin embargo, el transporte urbano es un asunto más político que técnico. Los aspectos técnicos son relativamente simples. Las decisiones difíciles están relacionadas con la ciudad que queremos y la manera como queremos vivir en ella. “¿Quién se va a beneficiar de los modelos adoptados? ¿Nos atrevemos a crear un modelo diferente al de las denominadas ciudades del mundo avanzado? ¿Nos atrevemos a crear un sistema de transporte que le dé prioridad a los pobres en lugar de a la minoría propietaria de automóvil particular? ¿Estamos tratando de encontrar la forma más eficiente y económica de mover a la población de la ciudad de la manera más limpia y cómoda? ¿O simplemente estamos tratando de minimizar los atascos del tráfico de las clases altas? Estas preguntas son formuladas por Enrique Peñalosa, ex-alcalde de Bogotá (Colombia), quién introdujo una serie de medidas de transporte sostenible en su ciudad. Este curso de Movilidad Urbana Sostenible en Países en Desarrollo está diseñado para proveer respuestas a las preguntas mencionadas así como soluciones y aproximaciones alternativas en planeación de transporte urbano que apunten a un sistema de transporte más sostenible en las ciudades de países en desarrollo.

TRANSFORuM

This short online course provides some background to the TRANSFORuM project, its consortium and involved stakeholders as well as its overall approach. Most importantly, it presents the highlights of TRANSFORuM's four Roadmaps, the core of their recommendations and some key lessons learned.

The Transport White paper also contains one goal about high-speed rail: "By 2050, complete a European high-speed rail network. Triple the length of the existing high-speed rail network by 2030 and maintain a dense railway network in all Member States. By 2050 the majority of medium-distance passenger transport should go by rail." This package provides a summary of the related stakeholder-driven TRANSFORuM roadmap.

Summary of the stakeholder-driven roadmap towards the White Paper goal on Long-distance Freight: "Thirty per cent of road freight over 300 km should shift to other modes such as rail or waterborne transport by 2030, and more than 50 % by 2050, facilitated by efficient and green freight corridors. To meet this goal will also require appropriate infrastructure to be developed."

TIDE: Public transport organisation

Increasing suburbanisation has created a need for neighbouring authorities to collaborate in providing public transport by forming metropolitan public transport authorities. This course will address the potential scope of MPTA activities, including alternative approaches and voluntary vs. obligatory PTAs. It will provide examples of successful MPTAs and address potential legal barriers and political obstacles.

TIDE: Cross-cutting themes

New mobility projects can impact many areas, including accessibility, equity, safety, liveability, health, the environment and public budgets. Neglecting any of these can lead to unsustainable planning. An assessment prior to implementation helps you select appropriate and cost-effective mobility measures, and gives you an idea whether the measures will bring the intended results. TIDE has developed a straightforward tool for determining the impacts of new transport measures. In this course, you can use the tool to assess measures from your own local context.

TIDE: Cross-cutting themes

The TIDE project addresses a range of innovative measures in transport (pricing measures, non-motorised transport, data and traffic management, electric mobility, public transport organisation). This course addresses how innovations in each of these areas fit into the larger picture of sustainable urban mobility planning in your town, city or region.

GEF-SUTP Training Modules on Sustainable Urban Transport Planning (2013)

The Government of India (GoI) initiated the Sustainable Urban Transport Project (SUTP) with support from the Global Environment Facility (GEF), UNDP, and the World Bank. The objective of the SUTP is to facilitate the provision of urban transport infrastructure and services in a manner that is consistent with the objectives of the National Urban Transport Policy (NUTP), which is a shift towards public transport and other sustainable modes of travel. One major component of this project involves building capacity amongst practitioners in the field of urban transport in order to strengthen policy making, decision-making, project implementation and management, operations and project evaluation skills at the central, state and city levels. The capacity building component of GEF - SUTP aims to establish the needed capacity for regular skill development of practitioners, public officials, other public functionaries, and urban professionals in the field of urban transport to be able to find solutions to these problems and apply the skills to planning. Accordingly, a set of 10 subject modules, each for a group of topics on subjects associated with sustainable urban transport planning, were developed by EMBARQ India, GIZ-SUTP and UMTC. These 10 modules are structured in such a way so as to provide the necessary background together with case studies and relevant learning’s for India that will provide a base to build capacity amongst the practitioners, city officials, etc.

UNITAR webinar series

The rapid and often unplanned and uncoordinated growth of cities has seriously compromised existing transportation systems and significantly increased the challenge of creating future transportation systems especially in developing countries. It is indeed in developing countries that the greatest growth in motor vehicles has been seen in the past few years and is expected in the future, primarily in urban areas. The environmental and social impacts are significant and directly related to quality of life and urban productivity. These impacts include congestion, energy consumption, air pollution, and traffic crashes. Thus, urban transportation issues are of foremost importance to support the mobility requirements in these growing cities and require new approaches. However, urban transport is a political rather than a technical issue. The technical aspects are relatively simple. The difficult decisions relate to the type of city we want and the way we want to live. Who is going to benefit from the models adopted? Do we dare to create a transport model different from that of the so-called advanced world cities? Do we dare create a transport system giving priority to the needs of the poor majority rather than the automobile owning minority? Are we trying to find the most efficient, economical way to move a city’s population, as cleanly and as comfortable as possible? Or are we just trying to minimize the upper class’s traffic jams? These questions are posed by Enrique Peñalosa, the former mayor of Bogotá (Columbia), who introduced a number of sustainable measures in his city. This online course on Sustainable Urban Mobility in Developing Countries, based on the material jointly developed by GIZ and UNITAR, is designed to provide answers to the abovementioned questions, as well as solutions and alternative approaches in the area of urban transport planning that target a more sustainable transport system in Developing Cities.
