Our cities are experiencing unprecedented changes in transportation that are driven by social, economic and technical trends. As city leaders, it is our responsibility to guide these changes to ensure that accessible, connected, affordable, safe, and environmentally friendly mobility options are being integrated into our existing and future communities. The Kaohsiung Strategies on the future of urban mobility adopted in October 2017 shall inspire local governments to transforming their transportation systems and mobility patterns towards reduced automobile dependency and towards becoming more sustainable, low-carbon and people-centered.
The Kaohsiung Strategies strengthen ecomobile solutions; walking, cycling, public transport, shared mobility and their interconnectivity as backbone of urban mobility in the future. The Kaohsiung Strategies equally call for a dedicated debate on emerging trends and new technologies, subsidies and bans including their opportunities, challenges and treats. They also present ICLEI’s translation of the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals and the New Urban Agenda into local mobility policies and shall bring a strong message on urban mobility and climate to the UN Climate Conference COP 23.
