Transportation and SDG2030
Although sustainable transport is not represented by a standalone SDG in the 2030 Agenda, it is mainstreamed in a direct or indirect manner into many of the proposed SDGs, especially those related to food security, health, energy, infrastructure, cities and human settlements, and climate change. Transport services and infrastructure are essential to achieving most, if not all, SDGs:
Transport-Relevant SDG Targets
The 2030 Agenda states that sustainable transport systems, along with universal access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy services, quality and resilient infrastructure, and other policies that increase productive capacities, would build strong economic foundations for all countries.The text includes five targets that are directly related to the transport sector and seven other targets that are indirectly related to the transport sector.
Transport contributes directly to five targets on road safety (Target 3.6); energy efficiency (Target 7.3); sustainable infrastructure (Target 9.1), urban access (Target 11.2), and fossil fuel subsidies (Target 12.c) emphasize that sustainable transport is not needed solely for its own sake, but rather is essential to facilitate the achievement of a wide variety of SDGs.
Transport also contributes indirectly to seven SDG targets on agricultural productivity (Target 2.3), air pollution (Target 3.9), access to safe drinking water (Target 6.1), sustainable cities (Target 11.6), reduction of food loss (Target 12.3), climate change adaptation (Target 13.1), and climate change mitigation (Target 13.2).
KMUTT WALK and BIKE UNIVERSITY
KMUTT transportation policy has been launched since 2010 and run one of the most comprehensive programs to reduce university-related traffic impacts—it's an essential part of our drive for sustainability. Transportation, accounts for 5 percent of KMUTT's greenhouse gas emissions. Increasing the use of alternative transportation reduces those emissions and makes our community a better place to live and work. KMUTT focus on limitation of car usage & car pool promotion, Walk & Bike society and Clean Energy usage for university van& bus. The transportation policy have been implemented within our university since 2011.And now, we are ready to expand our system and policy to surround communities and make sustainability for all in KMUTT.
