📑 ARS Progetti's team, produced the report “The role of Mediterranean cities and regions in building urban health policies, in particular through sustainable urban mobility measures”.
🚋 The urban mobility sector plays a key role in determining the degree of people’s health in cities. Issues like traffic congestion, air and noise pollution, road safety and land consumption have in fact a direct impact on the creation of healthy urban environments, as well as the likelihood of citizens to develop diseases, high levels of stress and unhealthy lifestyles.
➡️ Mediterranean cities are at the forefront of challenges such as air pollution, land use consumption and road safety. As the Mediterranean region becomes more densely populated, sustainable transport could be key in providing better urban living conditions.
🌍 Two case studies and other European best practices are anaylized, in order to develop key recommendations: Rabat and Tunis represent two examples of how Southern Mediterranean capital cities are trying to address these issues, promoting urban health by means of sustainable mobility measures. Both cities are currently implementing positive concrete actions in the framework of wider strategic planning, that are expected to improve the quality of people living in the cities by enhancing the mobility and transport sector.
🔎 This new #CIVEX study, conducted by ARS Progetti's team, assesses challenges and opportunities for sustainable mobility in cities across the Mediterranean.
