Subject: [sutp] Reading List on Financing Sustainable Urban Transport -
The main aim of the sustainable transport system is to increase the
mobility of the citizens through modes that are environmentally
friendly, economically feasible and socially accessible for all echelons
of the society. So far with the exiting knowledge on sustainable
transport and with available proof we can safely agree that the
sustainable modes of transport include public transportation (bus or
rail based), non-motorized transport (walking, and cycling).
The current document is one of the several efforts of GIZ-Sustainable
Urban Transport Project to bring to the policymakers an easy to access
list of available material on financing urban transport which can be
used in their everyday work. The document aims to list out some
influential and informative resources that highlight the importance of
financing in cities and how the existing situation could be improved.
The material stated in this document does not serve as a panacea for the
developing cities but give the policymakers the advantage of being
updated with the developments and existing material on the subject.
