  • Abstract:
    The past century saw extraordinary growth in the movement of both people and goods. This growth has contributed to major social and economic advances, but it now increasingly erodes some of the very benefits it has brought about. In particular, current trends in transport activity pose severe challenges for progress towards sustainable development. In response to the problems posed by transport for sustainability, the OECD initiated the Environmentally Sustainable Transport (EST) project in 1994. Since then, this major project has involved participants in 25 countries directly and indirectly. A conference held in Vienna from 4-6 October, 2000, hosted by the Government of Austria, was a culmination of work on the EST project. This document is the report on that conference, which had the title Environmentally Sustainable Transport (EST): Futures, Strategies and Best Practice. After three days of discussion, the conference participants adopted EST Guidelines for decision-makers concerned to develop policies towards sustainable transportation. The EST Guidelines and the several thousand pages of project reports form the concrete output of the EST project. The EST Guidelines in particular capture the wisdom and understanding gained through work on the project. A brochure explaining the EST Guidelines is found as Appendix D of this document. This document cancels and replaces the same document of 08 February 2002; this is the final version. (146 p.; 3.1Mb)
