    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.

      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.
