Economic benefits of sustainable transport measures: submit your evidence

12 June 2014

The EVIDENCE project is looking for evidence of the proven economic benefits of sustainable transport measures and initiatives.  The reviewed evidence will lead to a report whose purpose is to help politicians and transport practitioners understand the economic return on investment that can be achieved through increasing expenditure on sustainable transport.

This enhanced knowledge will help facilitate effective integration of sustainable transport measures into urban mobility plans improving the credentials as ‘sustainable’ urban mobility plans.  In doing so countries, regions, towns and cities will be better placed to improve health, increase economic efficiency, enhance access to employment, reduce the running costs of transport systems and help manage financial demands for new infrastructure.

A 'Call for evidence' will be open until October 2014. Evidence is invited in the form of scientific papers, reports and studies, valuation studies, or of examples of policy implementation. Submissions are welcome from all sectors including scientific and research institutions, governments, local authorities and managers of natural resources, the private sector, NGOs and other experts in Europe and around the world.
