Cities reduce crashes and improve health by implementing actions that favor public transit, non-motorized transportation and sustainable urban development. In this Rio +20 side event we will discuss with a range of organization how avoiding motorized travel through the integration of sustainable land use and transport planning – increasing accessibility, saving lives and protecting the environment. We will also analyze the vital importance of shifting to safer, healthier and more environmentally friendly modes, such as public and non-motorized transport. Finally, we will take a look at ways to improve safe systems through designs and operations.
