Workshop 3 : Traffic management for developing countries: tailoring the right solutions
Managing traffic conceals increasingly complex challenges today. Incidents can be unforeseeable or planned: accidents, road works, adverse weather conditions, strikes, demonstrations, major public events, holiday traffic peaks or other capacity overload. But managing "incidents" is only one part of the story. The real challenge and long-term goal is how to tailor the right solutions that can improve the quality of transport, ameliorate the traffic flow, increase the level of road safety while lowering at the same time emissions and noise pollution. In one word: how to deliver a better quality of life to people? Half of the world's population lives in cities today. A figure that will increase to 70% in 2050. Three-quarters of the fastest-growing metropolitan economies in 2012 were located in developing Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa. The workshop will discuss how to tailor appropriate traffic management solutions for developing countries and emerging economies.
