SOLUTIONS Factsheets

The SOLUTIONS project consortium consists of leading climate, mobility and transport experts from local authorities, consultancies and research institutes. All project partners have vast experience and expertise from working on sustainable urban mobility projects all over the world.

At an early stage of the project, the SOLUTIONS team identified and reviewed a large collection of sustainable urban mobility solutions, evaluating their transferability to cities in Asia, Latin America and the Mediterranean region. These were then "clustered" in six thematic areas and prioritised according to their relevance and transferability.

The SOLUTIONS factsheets were produced to build on the six thematic clusters and their respective measures. Each factsheet summarises the measure, and presents a case study of a city or town that has successfully implemented the measure.
