This panel presented TOD experiences in three countries. The discussion addressed successes and challenges of coordination — horizontal and vertically within governments; between public, private, and civic sectors; and across time frames and goals – allowing participants to draw from their experiences. Examples were presented from Mexico City (Mexico), Johannesburg (South Africa), Delhi, Ahmedabad, Bangalore, and Naya Raipur (the last four all in India).
Key Messages from Event :
- The participants from the cities talked about the need to integrate land use and transport planning and implementation, but the challenges that come with it in different situations. The tensions between increased services/accessibility and affordability were highlighted in all cases, along with the long term element of these processes in order to move beyond plans.
- The discussants presented the types of funding they provide – the GEF supporting vehicle technologies, rapid transit systems, and NMT infrastructure and innovative business models; and the EIB supporting EU policy.
- The need for a range of financing instruments that can be assembled in different combinations depending on the policy, project, and context.
