Transport for disabled people : international comparisons of practice and policy with recommendations for change by European Conference of Ministers of Transport( Book )
40 editions published between 1986 and 1990 in 3 languages and held by 666 libraries worldwide
Strategic environmental assessment in the transport sector by European Conference of Ministers of Transport( Book )
32 editions published between 1997 and 2000 in English and held by 437 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
Implementing sustainable urban travel policies : moving ahead : national policies to promote cycling by European Conference of Ministers of Transport( Book )
35 editions published between 2001 and 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 381 libraries worldwide
Cycling is an essential part of intermodal urban travel. While trends in car use continue to grow, cycling is increasingly recognised for its contribution as a clean and sustainable mode of transportation. This report brings together the experience of 21 countries and 7 municipalities in developing and implementing policies and measures to promote cycling as a means of travel. Based on the findings of the study, a Declaration on National Cycling Policies for Sustainable Urban Travel was agreed by ECMT Ministers at their 2004 Ljubljana Council. With this Declaration, Ministers recognized for the first time the importance of a national policy and institutional framework for promoting cycling

Assessing the benefits of transport by European Conference of Ministers of Transport( Book )
18 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 237 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
Efficient transport for Europe : policies for internalisation of external costs by European Conference of Ministers of Transport( Book )
16 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 206 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
Vehicle emission reductions by European Conference of Ministers of Transport( Book )
14 editions published in 2001 in English and German and held by 196 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

14 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 184 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
Transport links between Europe & Asia by European Conference of Ministers of Transport( Book )
9 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 130 libraries worldwide
Land links between Europe and Asia can offer a viable alternative to sea transport. However, the provision of efficient land links between Europe and Asia requires appropriate policy decisions on issues such as the development of adequate infrastructure and the removal of regulatory or institutional barriers that prevent the development of efficient transport services. This publication features the recommendations approved by the Ministers and the Report on trends in Europe-Asia trade and consequences for transport. It also includes the plan of action approved by Ministers to facilitate intermodal transport between Europe and Asia and the conclusions of a previous seminar in Kiev on Intermodal Transport between Europe and Asia: Opportunities and Challenges.--Publisher's description
Road safety performance : national peer review by European Conference of Ministers of Transport( Book )
17 editions published in 2006 in English and Russian and held by 129 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. In addition to the high toll of human tragedy and suffering, the socio-economic cost of crashes, officially estimated at 2.5% of GDP, presents a considerable barrier to a healthy Russian economy. 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 im
Improving transport accessibility for all : guide to good practice by European Conference of Ministers of Transport( Book )
13 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 117 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 )
11 editions published in 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 114 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 )
11 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 108 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
Speed management by OCSE( Book )
6 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 102 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
