Reducing Carbon Emissions through Transport Demand Management Strategies: A review of international examples. Executive summary

The objective of the project reported on in this paper is to build competency and capacity to encourage Beijing municipal authorities to model and quantify the benefits and impacts of a variety of transportation demand management strategies. The hope is that the use of transportation demand management schemes will decrease greenhouse gas emissions in China. In Beijing, serious traffic congestion and air pollution is a result of its residents' use of over five million automobiles. Three work streams are considered, that will aid in the evaluation of transportation demand management efforts. They involve transportation demand management measures and policies; emissions modeling, monitoring, and scenarios; and dissemination and deployment.
