Many cities in the South are growing rapidly, with the built-up area tripling for every doubling of the population, which is starting to pose serious accessibility challenges for most residents. These cities are at a point of possible bifurcation in their future, particularly between a very sparsely dense uniform sprawl model, or different and much more sustainable forms with densification that could be structured by public transport and active modes of transport networks. This session will present several mobility public policies that could help switch from one model to another.
