ITF Transport Outlook 2013 cover image

The ITF Transport Outlook brings together scenario analysis for the long term with statistics on recent trends in transport. It identifies the drivers of past and possible future trends and discusses their relevance to policy making. Factors that could drive supply and demand for transport services to higher or lower bounds are identified and their potential impact explored. 

This edition presents an overview of long-run scenarios for the development of global transport volumes through 2050. The analysis highlights the impact of alternative scenarios for economic growth on passenger and freight flows and the consequences of rapid urbanisation outside the OECD on overall transport volumes and CO2 emissions. It includes a Latin American urban transport case study that explores specific characteristics of urban development and their long-term effects in urban mobility, modal shares and related CO2 emissions in the developing world.
