The theme chosen for this issue of the Bulletin is urban transport in the Asian and Pacific region. Space is limited, but an attempt has been made to select topics that focus on some of the urban transportation issues in the region, such as traffic impact mitigation for new developments, sustainable transport and air pollution. It is hoped that these articles will increase awareness of policy implications and generate further debate.
