#Showcase #Transformation of Urban Transport and Mobility

Urban Health Hall
In most of the world's major cities, transport is the main source of air pollution. In some cities, it accounts for up to 80 to 90 percent of pollutants emitted into the atmosphere. Air pollution can cause cancer, as well as cardiovascular, respiratory, and other conditions. The WHO estimates that 9 out of 10 people breathe air containing high levels of pollutants, which causes 7 million deaths every year. The Urban Health agenda presses cities to adopt zero-carbon development programs and to create an environment that encourages citizens to maintain an active lifestyle.
It is estimated that in two to three decades many of the world's largest megacities will improve their environmental situation through the development of eco-friendly, green, and electric transportation alternatives and through the introduction of restrictions on internal combustion engine vehicles and limitations for the entry of freight transport and old vehicles. Moscow has been actively developing its electric bus and tram networks; the city has the largest and most modern electric bus fleet of all European capitals. Additionally, Moscow focuses on the development of green logistics and the creation of healthy and safe streets.
  • What urban planning and transport policies can contribute to the reduction of air pollutant emissions?
  • How do innovative urban transport solutions benefit the modern sustainable city? How can urban transport policy help create healthier and safer streets?
