Summary

Along the years, urban residents from various socio-economic groups have often been deprived of professional and social opportunities due to being captive to transport options. In parallel, over the last decade, it has been observed that priorities are given to infrastructure development more than to management and operation and citizen’s needs. This induced the latter to rationalize their mobility options against time budget rational.

Announcement

Presentation

Since 1980, every two/three years, CODATU is organizing International Conferences on urban transport with the aim of promoting sustainable urban mobility policies in emerging cities. The next CODATU Conference will take place in Hyderabad (India) from 7th to 10th November 2017 jointly with the 10th Urban Mobility India Conference and Exhibition (UMI), an annual flagship event of the Ministry of Urban Development. CODATU is calling for abstracts on the theme "Transport for Inclusive Urban Societies", and 6 sub-themes. 

Argument

Along the years, urban residents from various socio-economic groups have often been deprived of professional and social opportunities due to being captive to transport options. In parallel, over the last decade, it has been observed that priorities are given to infrastructure development more than to management and operation and citizen’s needs. This induced the latter to rationalize their mobility options against time budget rational.

Consequently, the infrastructure acted as an enabler for the citizens to establish their residences at ad-hoc locations often at more distant places, where their financial restrictions allowed to obtain affordable or better housing conditions, at the expense of accessibility. On the one hand, this was the generator of uncontrolled urban sprawl. On the other hand, it is the generator of fully fledged informal neighbourhood embedded in the city, and, hence, creating unmanageable traffic congestion with obvious irreversible social, economic, health and even patrimonial degradation.

This conference will address these phenomena under the following sub-themes, considering that transport options (motorized and non-motorized) are transversal and can be addressed under any of the sub-themes:

  • A: Transport exclusion
  • B: Environmental concerns
  • C: Urban Freight
  • D: Security and safety in urban transport
  • E: Demand and supply management
  • F: Smart cities: concept and policy practice

Abstracts must be submitted by October 15th, 2016, on CODATU's website.
