Report: Sustainable Urban Freight in Asia

asia-sutp-freight reportThere is a new joint publication with CAI-Asia on Sustainable Urban Freight in Asia online on www.sutp.org

Freight transport has severe negative impacts on the local air quality in many Asian cities, and contributes significantly to greenhouse gas emissions. To avoid such undesired effects and at the same time to foster economic development by assuring an efficient supply of urban agglomerations with the wide reange of required goods, local and national governments in Asia need to take action now. The joint GIZ – CAI Asia publication Sustainable Urban Freight in Asia provides an overview on the current situation with regard to urban freight in Asia and outlines possible measures to be taken. It is based in part on SUTP’s Module 1g Urban Freight in Developing Cities.
