Transportation in Developing Countries: An Overview
of Greenhouse Gas Reduction Strategies
AU: Sperling, D; Salon, D
SO: PEW CENTER ON GLOBAL CLIMATE CHANGE, ARLINGTON, VA 22201 (USA), May 2002, [vp]
This report explores strategic paths and alternative futures that could
break the link between economic and greenhouse gas emission growth in developing
countries. Successful efforts underway in some developing countries--examples
of which are highlighted in some of the case study reports that contributed
to this overview--demonstrate that developing countries can forge a more
sustainable transportation future. Is there a single city that can be looked
to as a model for others? This report suggests that the answer is "no."
There are cities and countries that have embraced innovative and effective
strategies, but none represents a universally applicable model or pathway.
INNOVATIVE WAYS OF QUANTIFYING SUSTAINABILITY
PERFORMANCE MEASURES IN DEVELOPING NATIONS
Conference: ITE 2001 Annual Meeting and Exhibit

Economic, social and environmental problems across the world have given rise to the concept of sustainable development. The objective of sustainable development is to address the economic, social and environmental needs of current and future generations. Sustainable transportation can be viewed as an expression of sustainable development in the transportation sector. For sustainable transportation to be successfully implemented it is essential that the concepts are adequately understood, quantified and applied (1). The focus of this paper is to show how to identify appropriate performance measures for sustainable transportation and how such measures can be quantified with new and innovative technologies. For this research, a corridor in a city of a developed nation and one in a developing nation were selected as test beds.

A successful transport scenario for the health
sector in developing countries.
Author: Collins CD; Myers G; Nicholson N Source: World Hosp (World hospitals.) 1992; 28(3): 9-14
The role and operation of transport in the health sector in developing
countries is important, costly but often taken for granted. This article
suggests the need for a fresh look at the policy, planning and management
of transport through the analysis of the essential components of a successful
transport scenario for health services in developing countries i.e. transport
and health planning; transport and organisational responsibility; the role
of health sector donors; decision-making and procurement of transport and
spares; transport and human resources; monitoring and control of transport
and information; maintenance and repair; the budget. The article concludes
with a checklist of key questions that may be used in assessing the contribution
of transport to the health services.
URBAN PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS. IMPLEMENTING
EFFICIENT URBAN TRANSIT SYSTEMS AND ENHANCING TRANSIT USAGE

Countries worldwide are facing problems associated with increased automobile
travel. Developing countries are finding that their infrastructure is outdated
and insufficient to handle this increase in auto travel and that their
foreign exchange reserves are being depleted due to importing oil at high
prices. Developed countries are facing increasing congestion, pollution,
and unchecked auto travel due to urban sprawl. Transportation engineers,
planners, and policymakers in all countries are attempting to encourage
and foster greater development and usage of urban public transit as an
alternative to auto travel. This publication presents the conference proceedings
of the American Society of Civil Engineer's First International Conference
on Urban Public Transportation Systems, held in Miami, Florida, in March
1999. Transportation professionals from 25 cities worldwide presented papers
on: 1) land use, socioeconomic characteristics, and travel patterns; 2)
urban transportation systems and the operation and use of these systems
by residents; and 3) topics pertaining to their own city's public transit
