Abstract

This report is a product of COST Action 616, which deals with mobile sources of urban air pollution. The report has engaged in drafting ways to assess and shape environment-oriented transport policies and is meant to be a learning scheme for all those involved in preparing and making political decisions. The Action looks for promising forms of future transport, but also deals with measures which can mean traffic restrictions. These measures must be assessed with regard to their environmental impact, but must also guarantee reasonable levels of mobility for all the population and all sectors of the economy. Also discussed are the types of questions which are raised when governments strive for environmentally sound traffic management and shows the type of arguments that have to be considered when engaging in that political challenge. This report has concentrated on behaviour-oriented approaches to transport policy. The design and implementation of such policies requires a high degree of learning, peoples participation and public/private partnership. The resulting learning scheme is based on practical experience and scientifically consolidated empirical evidence.
