Program areas at ITDP

Public transport: in 2018, itdp updated its databases on brt (featuring 48 cities) and parking (featuring 11 cities). These databases were strong technical references for many academic reports and articles. In addition, due to internet access restrictions in china, itdp launched an official wechat account (after having already been on weibo). In 2018, itdp china's posts attracted nearly 55,000 readers and itdp china's website had more than 80,000 visits. In china, itdp significantly advanced brt and sustainable transport corridors in rapidly growing, mid-sized chinese cities by building on and leveraging earlier project successes in large cities, especially guangzhou. With this approach, itdp successfully secured the opening of high-quality brt systems in three new cities (yichang, nanning, and wuhan) and under-construction systems in two more cities (jinan and zhuzhou) that are anchoring a host of complementary non-motorized transport (nmt), travel demand management (tdm), and transit-oriented Development (tod) interventions.

As a result of the tda and additional advocacy from itdp and slocat, there has been a rapid scale up of countries interested in urban transport as a key mitigation source, many of which have requested technical support. The tda also chaired a high-level discussion on e-mobility with the un secretary general and several heads of state during cop24. Itdp is in discussions to collaborate with the climateworks foundation on an electric mobility initiative that focuses on Policy and regulatory frameworks and develops plans for the electrification of buses, informal public transport, and micro-mobility in key cities in india.
