Planning and Design for Sustainable Urban Mobility: Global Report on Human Settlements 2013

This report highlights the importance of integrated land-use and transport planning. It argues that the development of sustainable urban transport systems requires a conceptual leap. The purpose 'transportation' and 'mobility' is to gain access to destinations, activities, services and goods. The authors believed that urban planning and design should focus on how to bring people and places together, by creating cities that focus on accessibility, rather than simply increasing the length of urban transport infrastructure or increasing the movement of people or goods.
