Guidelines can help cities develop and assess their transport policies to address existing and new policy objectives. Research organisations and institutions provide valuable data and analysis to underpin policy recommendations and decisions.

Workshop: Transport and disaster risk management

The longer a transport system remains disrupted during and after a shock, the more severe economic losses will be for community/region.

Climate changes taking place, in the form of more natural disasters occurring, have the ability of severely disrupting transport services and/or damaging the infrastructure thus limiting mobility or bringing it to a standstill in time of dire need.

More NOx from modern diesel cars than trucks - study

English

A new report by the International Council on Clean Transportation (ICCT) shows that the average amount of nitrogen oxides (NOx) present in exhaust emissions from modern diesel passenger cars is more than double the levels from modern trucks and buses.

The difference is attributable in large part to differences in how light-duty and heavy-duty vehicle emissions are regulated, and the contrasting performance highlights the importance of an upcoming decision on strengthening the real-driving emissions (RDE) test for passenger cars in the EU.
