Key mobility challenges in Indian cities

The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development’s (OECD) International Transport Forum (ITF) has published a discussion paper titled “Key Mobility Challenges in Indian Cities,” which identifies challenges in urban mobility in India under three sections: urbanization and transport; urban mobility challenges; and current policies and interventions. The first section on the paper, which was authored by Geetam Tiwari, reviews urbanization and transport and addresses travel patterns, city planning and vehicle ownership. The section on urban mobility challenges includes sub-sections on road accidents and fuel consumption-related greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The last section provides an overview of policy issues at the city, state and national levels.
