Addressed to city leaders, decision makers, urban planners, transport authorities and mobility service providers who want to take action

The integration of land-use and mobility planning to create sustainable, inclusive and resilient cities is well understood as a means for shaping city development around walking, cycling and public transport. However, in many cities, there is still much more to be done to further strengthen the integration of these planning processes.

This Policy Brief is addressed to city leaders, decision makers, urban planners, transport authorities and mobility service providers who wish to understand and improve the relations between public transport and land use in order to build an integrated and holistic approach of planning, and move towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The paper looks at the evolution of urban and mobility challenges in the last 20 years and reminds us of the need to integrate territory and mobility planning to build successful and sustainable cities.
