Supporting Product

Purpose


This document examines transportation in the context of sustainable development, and reviews Israel's performance relative to other countries.

 

Context

 

The term sustainable transportation describes a transportation network founded on the principles of accessibility, integration, prioritization for public transportation, and protection of the environment.

 

Sustainable transportation influences quality of life. An effective transportation system is a prerequisite for an environment that supports growth and an individual's economic security. In addition, sustainable development minimizes health and environmental risks to individuals and promises prosperity for future generations. Therefore, advancing sustainable transportation advances the Israel 15 Vision – making Israel one of the fifteen leading nations in quality of life in fifteen years.
