Many countries, particularly in the developing world, are experiencing growth, development and urbanization at an unprecedented scale. These changes affect every aspect of their economy, society and environment.
Rises in the demand for the transportation of goods and people will increase the impacts of transport in terms of detrimental effects to people and the environment. Many of these effects like air and noise pollution, congestion and health effects are felt in urban areas in developing and emerging countries in particular. Thus, strategies and new approaches are needed to support sustainability in transport, and for developing countries, would be of much help for achieving the goals of sustainability. Hence, this paper elaborates such an approach in urban mobility: Avoid-Shift-Improve (A-S-I) approach. The concept of A-S-I is a fundamental guiding principle for the development and implementation of strategies and instruments to promote sustainable urban mobility, considering that urban mobility needs to provide mobility opportunities for all.
