With the contribution of the LIFE programme of the European Union - LIFE14 ENV/GR/000611
The Global Mobility Report 2017 evaluates the progress made worldwide in the four areas of universal access, efficiency, safety, and green mobility. The transport sector is, according to the report, still dominated by high fossil fuel use, plagued by pollution & GHG emissions, high numbers of road fatalities and lacks behind in digitization.
The main transport technologies of today are the same since the industrialization in the 19th century, and meanwhile car usage has increased tenfold, sustainable modes of transport (i.e. cycling or public transport) have not seen much growth. This shows that achieving sustainable mobility all over the world is still far away, and it needs the effort of every one of us.
The report is created by Sustainable Mobility for All; the initiative brings together a diverse and influential group of transport stakeholders, with a commitment to speak with one global voice and act collectively to implement the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s) and transform the transport sector.
