Cover page of publication on road transport facts and figures

The Steering Committee of the Transport, Health and Environment Pan-European Programme (THE PEP) supported the preparation of a brochure on the major topics related to transport, health and environment as one of the outcomes of the Fifth High-level Meeting on Transport, Health and Environment. It emphasized that the brochure should be short, visually attractive and easily understandable. The Netherlands took the lead in the preparation of the brochure.

The brochure highlights key facts and figures to provide a solid basis for member States of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (ECE) and World Health Organization (WHO) European region to support their efforts in advancing the transport system in their own countries for the better and to accelerate the transformation towards sustainable transport and mobility, building forward based on an “Avoid–Shift–Improve” strategy in mobility and transport policies.
