Changing Course: A New Paradigm for Sustainable Urban Transport
ADB | 2009 | ISBN: 9789715618090 | 70 pages | PDF | 1 MB

In this book, ADB outlines a new paradigm for sustainable urban transport that gives Asian cities a workable, step-by-step blueprint for reversing the trend and moving toward safer, cleaner, more sustainable cities, and a better quality of urban life.

Most Asian cities have grown more congested, more sprawling, and less livable in recent years; and statistics suggest that this trend will continue. Rather than mitigate the problems, transport policies have often exacerbated them.
