COURSE DETAILS

The rapid, unplanned and uncoordinated growth of cities has seriously jeopardized existing transport systems and significantly increased the challenge of creating future transport systems, especially in developing countries. It is in the developing countries, mainly in urban areas, where the greatest growth of the automotive fleet has been seen in recent years and is expected for the coming years. The environmental and social impacts of these trends are significant. These impacts include congestion, energy consumption, air pollution, safety deficiencies and traffic accidents.

COURSE OBJECTIVE

The course aims to improve the capacity of local decision makers and transport planners to formulate and implement appropriate policies that contribute to the sustainability of urban transport in cities in developing countries. The course provides the space to analyze the most important issues of sustainable transport, including transport demand management, improving public and non-motorized transport, environmental protection, road safety and other gender issues in transportation.
