Urban Transport Forum for Livable Cities 2019
In developing countries of Asia and the Pacific, cities have very different levels of development and often lack core infrastructure and systems for efficient mobility or lack access, connectivity and inclusivity. The perspectives of right solutions vary between countries, but there still is a heavy bias towards simpler “engineered” solutions being developed.
The Urban Transport for Livable Cities Forum will show the innovative and practical solutions being developed and implemented in various Asian cities and multiple support mechanisms available from financiers that indicate the future is moving in the right direction, towards sustainable transport systems that enable livable cities. It will examine the experience of Asian cities in developing and implementing urban transport solutions in recent years, and will demonstrate solutions to these crucial questions by focusing on each of the key questions:
- How can effective urban transport systems be planned?
- What are the modal choices for integrated holistic solutions to ensure urban transport remain inclusive and affordable to all?
- How will future technologies impact current and future demand, and the best means to adapt?
- How can we overcome regulatory and institutional constraints to build capacity to effectively manage the whole urban transport network?
- Which are the most effective public-private financing mechanisms?
