Strategies for healthy, sustainable transport
Many sustainable transport strategies to reduce climate change risks have large, immediate health benefits for the majority of the world’s population, and large equity benefits for vulnerable groups. Well-designed transport policies and infrastructure investment priorities can lead to far-reaching reductions in traffic-related health risks from air and noise pollution and injuries.
Sustainable development strategies for the transport sector with significant health co-benefits include:
- Public transport
- Walking and cycling
- Land use and built environment
- Vehicle technologies
- Fuel technologies
