Conference organised by the OECD and the IEA hosted by the Government of Mexico
Increasing worldwide fleet growth and vehicle use makes reducing motor vehicle traffic and pollution a major environmental challenge for the coming decades. Should we make motor vehicles more fuel-efficient and more benign for the local and global environment? Or should we attempt to curb or even reduce their numbers and use? The Mexico City conference discussed the possible strategies for combining these approaches. This publication presents the papers from that conference and a set of highlights which synthesize the issues.
