Efficient and robust transport systems are a prerequisite for welfare and continued growth. But at the same time, the transport system accounts for a significant and growing proportion of the greenhouse gas emissions. The emissions from urban traffic also involve hygienic risks. Parts of the transport system also suffer congestion and capacity problems. Access to the transport system varies for different groups and in different parts of the country. Accidents and incidents still occur far too often. Forming tomorrow’s transport systems and combining the needs for mobility with demands for a good environment, safety and security are therefore the major challenges we face. A number of different measures are needed, both nationally and internationally, in order to arrive at an efficient and more climate-friendly, safe and secure transport system. It involves, not least, better utilization of the existing resources and capacity in the transport system, offering new and attractive solutions for both passenger and goods transport, and employing a variety of regulatory measures and incentives. ITS - Intelligent Transport Systems and Services - will play a much greater role in this context than it does today. According to estimates made for road transport in Europe, CO2 emissions could be reduced by 10 – 20%, accidents and incidents by 5 – 15% and congestion by 5 – 15% by employing different ITS solu¬tions. In parallel to this, cities are recognized in a larger extent than before as crucial hubs, around which the climate work will revolve. Harbors, airports, terminals and crowds – anywhere where special attention is needed the safe flow of goods, travelers and different kinds of transactions/information must be ensured. This is especially valid to achieve efficient traveling with regard to the climate, efficiency and safety, thus maintaining the cities attraction. In this session we will explore how the Swedish model of cooperation between private and public sectors for future multi modal transportation could contribute to fulfill the climate, safety, mobility, growth and sustainability goals set by governments and politicians all over the world. Our distinguished speakers have experience from different areas such as the public and private transport policies, urban mobility, land use and urban planning etc. Some of them have been awarded for their efforts – so let us listen and be inspired by their knowledge and experience.
