Sustainable transport: a critical driver to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals
The SLoCaT Partnership has released a new report, 'Sustainable Transport: A Critical Driver to Achieve the Sustainable Development Goals,' to summarise how transport has been reflected in the first quadrennial VNR reporting cycle from 2016 - 2019. Safe, efficient, low carbon, and affordable mobility for all is essential to sustainable human development and must be enabled in all sustainable development policies. Transport is central to powering lives and livelihoods. It is the engine of the global economy and helps spur human development. Every day, people all over the world depend on a variety of transport modes to make a living, go to school, access essential goods and services, and ultimately, enhance equal opportunities for participation in society. With growing transport demand and impacts, the sustainability of the transport sector must improve to meet sustainable development and climate action targets.
