Mobility for nearly-zero CO2

in Mediterranean tourism destinations

Project description

The Mediterranean territories are the subject of intense tourist flows that put strong pressure on transport infrastructure and global mobility, especially during the summer seasons. The impacts in terms of congestion are significant, with negative effects on air quality, increasing CO2 emissions, noise pollution, etc. In this context, adapted responses (sustainable urban mobility plans) to these seasonal tourist flows must be put in place. Alternatives (bus, train, bike …) viable must be offered to tourists traveling by private vehicle. For those arriving by sea or air, better integration between ports and airports and typical modes of transport shuttles, bicycles, etc. must also promote more sustainable mobility.

The European project MOBILITAS, supported by the European Commission within the framework of the Interreg-MED program, aims to promote low carbon mobility models in Mediterranean tourist areas, adopting methodologies that can subsequently be duplicated to a larger scale. Local and regional transport data as well as the solutions already in place are analyzed in order to propose adapted action plans. Different scenarios (scenario of normal course of business vs. scenarios incorporating packages of measures proposed) are developed and will allow decision-makers and other stakeholders to better evaluate the impact of the choices made, in a logic of transparency and monitoring that meets the issues of the MRV (Measure, Notify, Check). The partners of the MOBILITAS project also apply to promote the implementation of the recommended measures through a set of activities that will be offered to local authorities.
