Monitoring progress in urban road safety

See our 2022 update which tracks progress in reducing the number of road traffic fatalities and serious injuries in cities between 2010 and 2020. We present traffic safety data for 32 cities participating in the ITF Safer City Streets network and compare trends in urban and national road safety.

Transport Policy Matters blog reviews the viability of new faster-than-sound aviation projects that are generating media buzz worldwide.

Gender equality and the role of women in decarbonising transport

Why is adopting a gender-based analysis necessary when considering decarbonising transport policies? How can we strengthen awareness of the gender, transport and climate change policy nexus? What role do governments play? Find out more in our joint ITF/FIA Foundation report 

Decarbonising Europe’s trucks

To decarbonise, heavy-duty road freight must switch to zero-emission vehicles quickly. A new report report examines whether battery-electric vehicles, electric road systems and hydrogen fuel cell vehicles could compete with diesel-driven vehicles. 

Broadening transport appraisal

Many countries are shifting from a mobility to an accessibility focus; giving greater priority to ensuring equitable accessibility for all; recognising the urgency of decarbonising the transport system; and ensuring the health, safety and liveability of urban environments. This report discusses the implications of this shift in objectives for the practice of transport appraisal and transport planning processes more broadly.

Try our climate action tool

The Transport Climate Action Directory is an online database of transport CO2 reduction policy measures. It contains 80 mitigation measures along with the evidence-base needed to assess their effectiveness. It helps decision-makers to translate their decarbonisation ambitions into actions and achieve their climate objectives. 

Find disabled driver options around the globe

We teamed up with FIA's #PurposeDriven initiative to provide an online resource showing options for people with special needs across different countries.

How serious are countries about decarbonising transport?

Our Transport NDC Tracker monitors how transport appears in countries' decarbonisation commitments. Do countries mention transport in their "Nationally Determined Contributions" (NDCs)? Have they included decarbonisation measures and set concrete CO2-reduction targets for transport?

Mobility Innovation Hub
Mobility Innovation Hub

ITF’s Mobility Innovation Hub helps governments to develop innovative policies for better transport in the face of uncertainty and rapid change. It scans for transport-relevant developments at the horizon of public authority foresight, assesses their potential impacts and highlights best practices for deploying effective policies.

ITF Gender Analysis Toolkit for Transport

Gender analysis is the first step towards achieving gender equality. We're helping countries to develop their own toolkit to conduct gender analysis for transport policies and support gender policy dialogue.
