Urban transport planning is very complex and urban mobility solutions need to be multi-dimensional in nature. It needs a comprehensive and holistic approach requiring a combination of supply side and demand side measures. Good urban transport planning should be more than just engineering and should encompass other important considerations such as land use planning, energy efficiency, emissions characteristics, traffic management, human behavior, economics, finance, public policy, governance, health, safety, gender, disability, affordability, ITS, etc. It is important to fully understand the linkages among these different dimensions.
The key objective of the e-learning course is to develop capacity amongst those policy makers and practitioners responsible for urban transport planning and decision making, to understand urban transport in all relevant dimensions, and develop urban transport plans, programs and projects that are more integrated and sustainable.
The course will comprise the following 7 modules:
- Module 1 – Introduction and overview
- Module 2 – Methodologies
- Module 3 – Governance
- Module 4 – Public Transport & Complementary Services
- Module 5 – Beyond Public Transport
- Module 6 – Financing and PPP
- Module 7 – Social and environmental issues
The e-learning course will be primarily intended for those who occupy or would soon occupy leadership positions in urban transport planning and decision making at the administrative/technical level, including leaders and managers in the city, provincial and national governments, mid-career professionals as well as representatives from civil society, academia, consulting companies and other stake holders who are in a position to influence decision making.
