The Low Emissions Development Strategies (LEDS) Transportation Work Stream Toolkit provides access to technical resources, peer expert assistance, and training on transport systems. Its aim is to support government planners, decision-makers and technical practitioners that are planning and implementing LEDS at the regional, national, and local levels to enable economic growth while avoiding greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Transportation is a complex system that can be organized into institutional, modal, and technological analytical components. The institutional component of a transport system is composed of economic and regulatory policies and planning institutions. This document focuses on four types of land transport modes: · Non-motorized transport – walking, cycling · Private motorized vehicles · Public transport – bus, rail · Freight transport Lastly, the technology components ensure the effectiveness and efficiency of the multimodal transport system. These include vehicle and fuel technologies, system infrastructure, and innovative tools and organizations. The Toolkit provides resources to develop strategies for: · Development Impacts Assessment · Fuels and Efficiency · Governance and Planning · Greenhouse Gas Inventory · Mass Transit Systems · Multimodal Integration · Non-Motorized Transport · Policies and Regulations · Vehicles
