Transport policy and the environment : ECMT ministerial session by European Conference of Ministers of Transport( Book )
14 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 305 libraries worldwide
Final report : implementing sustainable urban travel policies by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development( Book )
22 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 239 libraries worldwide
There is widespread agreement that in order to bring about sustainable travel in urban areas, flexible, integrated policy packages are needed that send the right signals to urban land use and transport markets. The project on Implementing Sustainable Urban Travel Policies conducted by the ECMT has shown that actually implementing integrated policy packages for sustainable urban travel is easier said than done for a great number of cities in ECMT and OECD countries. While in most countries, urban land use and travel policies are defined and implemented at the local or regional levels, there is growing recognition that national governments can improve chances for implementation of integrated policy packages by providing for a flexible, sectorally integrated policy framework that sends the right messages to regions and cities via policy incentives and project financing. This report examines the ways in which national governments can act as catalysts for sustainable travel practices on a local level
Strategic environmental assessment in the transport sector by European Conference of Ministers of Transport( Book )
18 editions published between 1997 and 2000 in English and held by 230 libraries worldwide
Environmental impact assessments are an essential component of making decisions on transport infrastructure investments. Traditional procedures have proved ineffective for impacts that go beyond the scope of projects in isolation. Strategic environmental assessment has emerged in response, to address large scale effects including impacts on traffic across networks, impacts on climate change and biodiversity and the impacts of policy decisions as opposed simply to individual projects. This report examines recent experience in developing environmental assessment internationally and makes recommendations on maximising the effectiveness of this new tool
Improving access to public transport by European Conference of Ministers of Transport( Book )
22 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and French and held by 228 libraries worldwide
"Accessible, user-friendly transport means that disabled and older people can use the transport system without hindrance to participate in society on an equal basis without losing their independence. Whilst much progress has been made in all modes of transport to make travel easier and more pleasant for all passengers, it is the attitude and skill of the driver, captain, pilot, etc. that can make the difference between a pleasant and safe journey for a disabled or older person and one that is fraught with worry, frustration or confusion. These guidelines are designed to encourage understanding of the specific problems experienced by disabled and older passengers when using the transport system, and to provide guidance on how best to respond to their needs. They provide a practical approach to providing good customer care - a priority for all transport companies."--Publisher summary
Efficient transport for Europe : policies for internalisation of external costs by European Conference of Ministers of Transport( Book )
18 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 209 libraries worldwide
Pollution, accidents and congestion all cause unnecessary welfare losses, and while transport services are an essential component of economic and social development, their negative side effects are drawing increasing political attention. Internalisation aims to create incentives to reduce these external costs by factoring them into markets. This report summarises the theoretical and practical dimensions to internalisation; reviews recent estimates of external costs; explores the mix of policies that might be used to promote internalisation successfully; and estimates the size of incentives required in monetary terms
Assessing the benefits of transport by European Conference of Ministers of Transport( Book )
18 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 208 libraries worldwide
This book discusses the full economic benefits - and costs - of transport infrastructure and explores ways to make good estimates of the full impact of planned investments on regional and national economies. It argues for proper account to be taken of all relevant economic weaknesses -- those the project is designed to address such as local monopoly pricing, those associated with use of the infrastructure such as environmental externalities, and possible unintended consequences such as impacts on local labour markets. Care must also be taken to verify that net benefits are likely to accrue to those that the project was intended to benefit. Building on recent groundbreaking work in the United Kingdom this publication suggests ways to improve traditional cost-benefit assessments, overcoming reservations that have inhibited the use of CBA in many countries. The main report is completed with examinations of transport project assessment approaches in France, Germany, the United Kingdom and across Europe together with a discussion of an approach to determining optimal levels of investment in transport infrastructure for maximising socio-economic welfare
Strategic environmental assessment for transport by European Conference of Ministers of Transport( Book )
13 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 201 libraries worldwide
Environmental impact assessments are an essential component of making decisions on transport infrastructure investments. Traditional procedures have proved ineffective for impacts that go beyond the scope of projects in isolation. Strategic environmental assessment has emerged in response, to address large scale effects including impacts on traffic across networks, impacts on climate change and biodiversity and the impacts of policy decisions as opposed simply to individual projects.

Improving transport for people with mobility handicaps by European Conference of Ministers of Transport( Book )
20 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and German and held by 196 libraries worldwide
A large number of people with mobility handicaps have difficulty using transport systems and this number will increase significantly over the coming decades. It is therefore essential that transport infrastructure and systems are designed and built to cater for their needs. This publication sets out key principles and guidelines for making all transport modes and related infrastructure more accessible. In addition, it provides examples and illustrations of good practice from many different countries. It is intended to help policy makers, planners, architects, and others working in this field, improve accessibility for people with mobility handicaps
Vehicle emission reductions by European Conference of Ministers of Transport( Book )
16 editions published in 2001 in 3 languages and held by 194 libraries worldwide
This report reviews vehicle emissions standards in Europe, Japan and the United States, providing the reader with valuable comparisons. It also examines incentives for sulphur free fuels - which can contribute to reducing both conventional air emissions and carbon dioxide. It describes emissions control technologies and the impact of emissions on health and the environment and assesses the adequacy of emissions limits for new passenger cars and heavy duty diesel engines
Social aspects of road transport by European Conference of Ministers of Transport( Book )
16 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 186 libraries worldwide

Rail restructuring in Europe by European Conference of Ministers of Transport( Book )
14 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 183 libraries worldwide
Europe's railways are going through a period of radical restructuring in the drive to improve their efficiency and competitiveness. The emphasis is on fostering commercial freedom through a clearer separation of the roles of the State and of rail enterprises and through a progressive opening of access to rail infrastructure. This report examines reforms in over 30 countries from the Atlantic to the Urals, characterizing restructuring in terms of management independence, separation of infrastructure from operations and rights of access to rail infrastructure
Road safety performance : national peer review by European Conference of Ministers of Transport( Book )
18 editions published in 2006 in 3 languages and held by 121 libraries worldwide
"The Russian Federation has the highest road death rate of all ECMT member countries and contributes one third of all road deaths in these countries. This report finds that the problem is predominantly urban, concentrated in Russia's largest cities, and with particularly sharp increases in deaths and serious injuries experienced in the Moscow region. International experts who undertook this review confirm that substantial improvements in road safety can be achieved through concerted, sustained and evidence-based action, and they make a series of recommendations on how this can be done."--OECD
Improving transport accessibility for all : guide to good practice by European Conference of Ministers of Transport( Book )
16 editions published in 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 119 libraries worldwide
"Much has been done to improve the accessibility of transport systems in recent years. The ECMT has prepared this Guide to Good Practice in order to facilitate such an exchange of experience. It addresses both countries where improvements to accessibility are under way, and those that are just now making that commitment. With examples from recent experience in a wide range of countries, this Guide updates the ECMTs 1999 Guide, pointing to areas where progress has been made as well as to those where challenges persist. In particular, it covers principles for provision of information generally, how to improve information regarding the road and pedestrian environment, how to improve information provided within transport infrastructure, how to improve information provided relative to transport vehicles, new and innovative transport services, and private cars, and the roles of government."--Publisher summary
Railway reform & charges for the use of infrastructure by European Conference of Ministers of Transport( Book )
12 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 115 libraries worldwide
Over the last few years, much progress has been made in developing rail charges to ensure non-discriminatory access to, and efficient use of national rail networks, but in Europe the international dimension is still missing, particularly in terms of the freight market. Integration of European markets should provide great opportunities for rail freight transport to grow. The purpose of this report is to set out how barriers to this growth - arising from differences in the way trains pay to use national networks - can be overcome. It recommends moving to a set of simple charges for freight that create similar incentives for the management and planning of train operations across national borders.--publisher summary
Inland waterways & environmental protection by European Conference of Ministers of Transport( Book )
14 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 111 libraries worldwide
This report reviews experience in mitigating the environmental impacts of inland waterway development. It examines effective consultation and planning procedures across Europe. In particular it assesses the ways in which the EU Water Framework Directive affects the planning environment for international waterways and sets a new agenda for improving the ecological value of waterways. It makes recommendations on good practice and identifies the Danube river basin as the critical area for improvement: This is where the efforts of international governmental organizations and NGOs could most usefully be combined to develop a basin-wide environmental protection and waterway development strategy.--Publisher summary
50 years of transport research : experience gained and major challenges ahead : 16th International Symposium on Theory and Practice in Transport Economics : Budapest, 29-31 October 2003 : introductory reports and summary of discussions by International Symposium on Theory and Practice in Transport Economics( Book )
17 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 105 libraries worldwide
These proceedings of the 16th International Symposium on Theory and Practice in Transport Economics sketch a broad overview of transport economics research since the inception of the ECMT in 1953 and map out the directions for future work. The 22 papers presented cover such topics as transport infrastructure's contribution to economic growth, modal split, competition in the transport sector, the need for a supra-national regulatory authority, charging systems, and environmental sustainability
Speed management by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development( Book )
7 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 105 libraries worldwide
Speeding is responsible for around one third of the current, unacceptably high levels of road fatalities. Reducing average speeds on the roads by only 5% would save around 20% of current fatalities. This report, prepared by a Working Group of the Joint OECD/ECMT Transport Research Center, addresses the key issues and highlights the improvements in policy and operations needed to reduce the extent of speeding. It outlines a framework for achieving the best possible safety outcomes while protecting the environment and supporting sustainable mobility
Principales actions de la CEMT dans le domaine de la sécurité routière by European Conference of Ministers of Transport( Book )
38 editions published between 1986 and 1994 in 4 languages and held by 101 libraries worldwide
Transport and decentralisation by Round Table on Transport Economics( Book )
6 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 89 libraries worldwide
Over the past decades, many OECD countries transport sectors have become more decentralized. This report examines whether the economic benefits and experiences of decentralization have been positive. It finds that the answers vary according to the mode of transport, the type of decentralization, and transport users representation in the process of decision-making.--Publisher's description
