Cities produce more than 70 percent of the world’s carbon emissions, and transport is one of the largest contributors. Therefore, getting urban transport right is crucial to the health of our cities and our planet.
Our Cities Ourselves, a project of the Institute for Transportation and Development Policy, attempts to address these issues and promote a vision for our cities that is more livable, equitable, and sustainable. By highlighting international best practices and successful case studies, OCO seeks to facilitate an exchange of ideas on present urban conditions, key challenges, and possible solutions to realize our vision for better cities.
The Institute for Transportation and Development Policy works with cities worldwide to bring about sustainable transport solutions that cut greenhouse gas emissions, reduce poverty, and improve the quality of urban life.
