How Cities Are Managing Their Transportation Growing Pains

“Urban transport problems are perverse. While education or healthcare improves as societies grow wealthier, transport problems worsen,” – The Urban Transport Crisis in Emerging Economies.

Rapidly growing cities in developing regions are experiencing new problems in transportation, as pointed out in the opening lines to the new book The Urban Transport Crisis in Emerging Economies. While the problems advance they also present opportunities for a more sustainable future. This webinar will explore case studies and introduce urban issues, policies, and initiatives that are taking place in frontier markets.

Watch this webinar to:

  • Hear about transport issues, policies, and initiatives
  • Recognize the transport needs of a large portion of the world’s urban population
  • Learn of the role that economic growth plays in transport’s opportunities and challenges
