Transport presentation – South Asia

To encourage a dialogue on What’s in it for South Asia, this slideshow of four images on South Asia’s transport can be used by anyone for training and discussion purposes.

What’s in it for South Asia emphasizes the opportunities and co-benefits of low-carbon transport, with many of the measures 
to avoid greenhouse gas emissions providing generous gains in economic productivity, human development and quality of life. For example, the development of low-carbon mass transit systems can boost economic productivity, by reducing traffic congestion, and can improve air quality, thus benefiting public health.

A case study discussed in What’s in it for South Asia examines the Western Province in Sri Lanka, which is the
 most urbanised province in the country. The rapid urban growth has posed a number
of problems, including increasing vehicle traffic and commercial industries which have contributed to increased environmental and air pollution. Meanwhile, the food and construction industries are identified as two major sources of greenhouse gas emissions, including those generated through transport.
