Transforming Urban Mobility: Introduction to Transport Planning for Sustainable Cities

Good transport systems and projects are critical to the development of environmentally sustainable and socially inclusive cities.This course considers the impacts of motorisation, our current unsustainable travel patterns, and the framework for changing to sustainable urban mobility. You’ll explore the impacts of different transport systems and discover approaches to transport planning that help cities become more sustainable. You’ll also examine the different dimensions of sustainable urban mobility, including the Avoid-Shift-Improve (ASI) framework, which strives to achieve significant GHG emission reductions, reduced energy consumption, less congestion, with the final objective being to create more liveable cities. You can take this self-guided course and learn at your own pace. On every step of the course you can meet other learners, share your ideas and join in with active discussions in the comments. The course is best suited to transport and city planning practitioners in both the Global South and Global North, including in Africa, Latin America and Asia. This includes academics, researchers, students and those working in national and city authorities, consultancies, and civil society. It’s also suited to those who are simply interested in learning more about sustainable urban mobility.
