Welcome

  • This Site is all about sustainable transport with a special emphasis on developing countries.
  • In my view, sustainable transport includes pedestrians, cyclists, public transport users as well as animal-driven modes (mainly in rural areas) and similar "miscellaneous" modes. The above-mentioned modes are environmentally friendly, far more economical than motorised modes for shorter distances and suited for use by the majority of the population (ie. ecologically, economically and socially sustainable).
  • I have to admit that you'll mainly find information on cycling and urban issues because that is where I have concentrated my efforts.
  • You will find information concerning private sector initiatives because they are a natural lobby to promote their respective transport modes. This emphasis is also due to my business administration background.
  • I am particularly sensitive to gender issues in transportation so they are included as far as information is available.
