European and Latin American cities exchange experience how to make urban mobility safe and sustainable

The workshop "Safe and low-carbon urban mobility in action” took place on 9 April 2019 in Buenos Aires as a side event of the 5th Meeting of the Safer City Streets Network. The event investigated Synergies and co-benefits between low-carbon and safety measures and Safety aspects of sustainable e-mobility solutions.

Following an insight in the International Transport Forum's work on low carbon urban mobility, micromobility and safety delivered by Stephen Perkins, five cities shared their experiences:

  • Planning and integration of e-mobility solutions in Madrid by Sergio Fernández Balaguer, Municipal Transport Enterprise of Madrid (EMT)
  • Relationship between decarbonisation and safer streets in Budapest’s SUMP, by László Sándor Kerényi, Head of Mobility Strategy BKK Centre for Budapest Transport
  • London buses air quality programme, by Jane Lupson, Senior Bus Safety Development Manager, Transport for London
  • Results of Lisbon’s involvement in the FLOW project by Pedro Homem de Gouveia, Head of the Pedestrian Accessibility Department of the Municipality of Lisbon
  • The clean vehicle strategy of Buenos Aires, by Constanza Movsichoff, Lead of the Sustainable and Electric Mobility Project, Government of the Autonomous City of Buenos Aires, Argentina

The Urban Electric Mobility Initiative (UEMI) supports cities in the implementation of low-carbon mobility measures and provided a space in which European and Latin American cities can exchange their views and experience on how to integrate road safety measures in low-carbon mobility planning.
