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 for Leadership on Future Urban Mobility will be one of the legacies of the Kaohsiung EcoMobility World Festival and 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 shall bring a strong message on urban mobility and climate to the UN Climate Conference COP 23 in Bonn in November 2017. It also takes up the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals and the New Urban Agenda into strategies for local mobility policies.

The Kaohsiung Strategies are based on the Shared Passenger Mobility Principles, a joint document by 13 organizations in Kaohsiung in October 2017.

Our starting point:

Sustainable , inclusive, prosperous, and resilient cities depend on transportation that facilitates the safe, efficient and pollution-free flow of people and goods, while also providing affordable, healthy, and integrated mobility for all and accepting low-carbon and resource efficient development as key goals.
