Strategies and Public Policies for a more sustainable mobility
The recognition of the environmental, social, political and economic impacts of mobility, both for people and goods, is leading cities and territories to accelerate the transition towards more efficient and sustainable models based on the use of new energies.
The implementation and consolidation of these new mobility models require the formulation of public policies, or rules of the game, promoting stakeholder alignment and engagement. These can address issues such as inclusive social development, urban planning, health, safety, the environment, technology and innovation, among others. In turn, the formulation of such policies might come from citizens (bottom-up), from the authorities (top-down) or from a hybrid version which combines both (policy networks).
Therefore, it is crucial to review the different plans, programs and projects that are currently being carried out by local governments in order to promote the configuration of new models of sustainable urban mobility in the local context, as well as to discuss the relevance of building global regulatory frameworks that guide and generate a commitment among cities to move forward in this direction.
