Elaborating a sustainable mobility-oriented transport policy
The integrated approach to planning is oriented towards promoting walking, cycling, public passenger transport and other alternative forms of sustainable mobility while limiting the use of private motorized vehicles, particularly those that are fossil fuel-powered.
Policy-making is a key strategic area of the national level where individual policies mutually complement and support one another, constituting an integrated development system. Transport policy is a part of the economic development, social welfare, spatial planning and environmental policies. It takes into account the development needs and coordinates them with the possibilities of implementing investments while keeping in mind spatial planning, environmental, climate and other limitations, which provides the basis for elaborating harmonised goals.
Sustainable mobility is an important factor in achieving these goals, contributing to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, cleaner air in urban areas, a higher quality of living, public health and social justice. Implementing sustainable mobility principles in towns also stimulates the local economy.
To this end, the national level carries out projects that contribute to implementing the sustainable mobility principles and elaborating harmonised transport policy goals.
