Global mobility report 2017: tracking sector performance
According to this global mobility report, the world is not on track to achieving sustainable mobility. Apart from being inaccessible to many of the world’s most vulnerable, the transport sector today is plagued by high fossil fuel use, rising greenhouse gas emissions, air and noise pollution, an alarming number of road fatalities, and a reluctance to embrace digitalization.
The Global Mobility Report 2017 (GMR) is the first-ever attempt to examine performance of the transport sector globally, and its capacity to support the mobility of goods and people, in a sustainable way. The GMR is built around three components: four global objectives that define “sustainable mobility”; quantitative and qualitative targets for those objectives, drawn from international agreements; and indicators to track country-level progress towards those objectives. It covers all modes of transport, including road, air, waterborne and rail.
