A holistic approach to mobility planning is essential for developing cities as they become the engines of economic growth and also major contributors to GHG emissions. They are also faced with severe congestion, deteriorating air quality and increasing incidence of road crashes. This is adversely impacting people’s health and constraining economic growth. Building flyovers and road widening has often led to long run increases in road traffic and congestion. Others have built rail mass transit systems, but high costs have limited their extent and coverage. So what is the best route to take?

This event aims at developing leadership capabilities in urban mobility planning. It seeks to create awareness of what integrated mobility planning involves, what are its different components and how it needs to be undertaken. It will use a “hands on” learning approach, making extensive use of case studies, group exercises and site visits – all aimed at highlighting linkages between the different components of the urban transport system.

Ideal participants would be policy makers and planners from national, state and city level governments who are responsible for “putting the pieces together”. Participants from civil society, consultants and professional staff of consulting companies would also find the program very useful. Potential faculty from local training institutions would also gain from this program.
