Policies, Institutions, and Coalitions for Low Carbon Transportation in Emerging Countries

Publication Year: 2018

Author(s): Lah Oliver (Ed.)


This book examines how sustainable urban mobility solutions contribute to achieving worldwide sustainable development and global climate change targets, while also identifying barriers to implementation and strategies to overcome them. Building on city-to-city cooperation experiences in Europe, Asia, Africa and Latin America, the book examines key challenges in the context of the Paris Agreement, UN Sustainable Development Goals and the New Urban Agenda, including policies needed to achieve a sustainable, low-carbon pathway for transport and how an integrated policy strategy is designed to provide a basis for political coalitions.

Sustainable Urban Mobility Pathways  provides a holistic view of sustainable urban transport, focusing on policy-making processes, the role of institutions and successes and pitfalls. The book describes the policy, institutional, political, and socio-economic aspects in cities in five emerging economies: Brazil, China, India, Mexico, and Turkey.
