Parallel Session 14 – Integrated land use and urban transport development

Being able to meet growing population needs with sustainable urbanisation patterns and sustainable travel options offers many benefits for citizens and businesses alike. Better integration can lead to socio-economic development, urban renewal and the ability to control urban sprawl. It can also lead to higher density development which offers environmental and economic benefits as transport costs for compact development are generally lower than for dispersed car-dependent development.
