Contribution on Smart Urban Mobility for Safe, Inclusive, Resilient and Sustainable Cities Habitat III Conference Quito 17-20 October 2016

IRU’s contribution on smart urban mobility, Habitat III Conference, Quito 2016

Rapid urban growth has led to urban sprawl and higher demand for motorised mobility and travel – with a range of social, economic and environmental consequences. With 90% of global population growth due to occur in cities of developing countries, the struggle to meet demand for mobility and investment in transport is critical. Specific support is needed to assist landlocked developing countries, least developed countries and small-island developing states, which are facing the most serious mobility and transport challenges. A paradigm shift is urgently needed – notably in collective door‑to‑door public transport, infrastructure and services.
