GTZ releases a Reading List on Non-motorised Transport
- A broad definition of NMT would be any kind of a transport system that
would not run on a motor. Some such examples are walking, cycling,
rickshaws etc. Including these modes is very important should a city aim
to be sustainable in terms of transport. In developing cities, there is
a huge echelon of the society that is very dependent on the NMT modes
mentioned above. The urban poor used walking and cycling as their basic
means to access their work. Depriving them of NMT would be snatching
their daily bread and pushing them deeper into destitution.
The current document is one of the several efforts of GTZ-Sustainable
Urban Transport Project to bring to the policymakers an easy to access
list of available material on NMT which can be sued in their everyday
work. The document aims to list out some influential and informative
resources that highlight the importance of NMT in cities and how the
existing situation could be improved.
