Abstract
This report has been compiled within the framework of the programme on Regional Air Pollution in Developing Countries (RAPIDC), Phase III conducted during the period 2005-2008. RAPIDC is funded by the Department of Infrastructure and Economic Cooperation (INEC) of the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA). It is coordinated by the Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI) and carried out in collaboration with Swedish Universities and research organisations together with inter-governmental agencies and research organisations in Asia and Africa. This work has been produced by the International Institute for Industrial Environmental Economics (IIIEE) at Lund University.

This report has been compiled within the framework of the programme on Regional Air Pollution in Developing Countries (RAPIDC), Phase III conducted during the period 2005-2008. RAPIDC is funded by the Department of Infrastructure and Economic Cooperation (INEC) of the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA). It is coordinated by the Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI) and carried out in collaboration with Swedish Universities and research organisations together with inter-governmental agencies and research organisations in Asia and Africa. This work has been produced by the International Institute for Industrial Environmental Economics (IIIEE) at Lund University.

This document generally focuses upon, and is primarily directed towards the eight signatory countries to the Malé Declaration on Control and Prevention of Air Pollution and Its Likely Transboundary Effects for South Asia (Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Iran, the Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka) but is in essence relevant to most developing countries. This document serves as a decision support information resource for best available technologies and techniques to address air pollution from the transport sector. Drawing on the experiences of other countries, regions and municipalities this document presents a comprehensive overview and successful examples of technical and organisational measures and strategies that can contribute towards reduced air pollution from transport systems.

Best available technologies and techniques (practices) that should be considered when defining strategies for sustainable and cleaner transport systems are presented within this report. This work distinguishes between:

(1) land use planning and mobility management, being the fundamental starting point for managing and steering transport demand,

(2) transit, walking and cycling being more sustainable transport options than individual motorised transport, and finally

(3) cleaner vehicles and cleaner fuels. (Less)
