City survey : analysis and results
AbstractThe WHO Centre for urban health launched the "In Tandem" project (Promotion of Energy Efficient Personal Transport in a Network of European Cities), in co-operation with 8 European Cities. The overall aim of this project is to promote cycling in cities. It is partially funded by the Commission of the European Union DGTREN, Energy and Transport, under its SAVE programme to promote energy efficiency. "In Tandem" was undertaken as a response to the growing evidence that present urban mobility policies and patterns have important health effects through accidents, emissions of pollutants and noise, reduced opportunities for physical exercise, and their contribution to urban inequalities. The aim of the survey was to determine the level of cycling policy development and implementation in the eight participating cities. It builds on the results of a Literature review, and provides further information on factors leading to pro-cycling activities, and barriers to change in local authorities
