Transport planning in Latin America and the Caribbean has traditionally focused on improving conditions for motorized mobility – private and public – without giving a similar level of consideration to the development of space for pedestrians and cyclists. However, incorporating strategies to increase bicycle use and facilitate walking is a practical and accessible way to reduce CO2 emissions while improving quality of life for city dwellers.
This webinar will discuss the concept of non-motorized mobility as well as the challenges and opportunities to promote it in Latin America and the Caribbean. It will present Mexico City’s experience in implementing public bike-sharing programs.
Introduction: Aída Figari, technical expert, LEDS LAC Secretariat, Libelula Peru.
