Abstract:

This report was produced by Laake, a participant of the Young Leaders in Sustainable Transport in 2019. This article puts forward the argument that a clearer assessment of the respective benefits and downsides of active transport and motorisation is central to achieving sustainable and inclusive development. With the global policy framework currently failing to decarbonize the transport sector in line with the Paris Agreement commitments1 and, at the same time, squandering the full potential of sustainable transport to contribute to the Agenda 2030, there is a pressing need to reconsider the way sustainable transport has been conceptualized, mobilized and put into action.
