IGU2022 Paris – Call for Abstracts: “Legacy and impact of municipality investments and policies during COVID-19 in transport and their role in the recovery”
As the world returns to “the new normal,” following the COVID-19 pandemic, a number of municipalities made decisions in terms of prioritizing funding when tax revenues were reduced. Some municipalities favoured transit, cycling or walkable development. Others developed better parking strategies. Still others utilized a mix of transit and dense, brownfield or smart infill development to drive growth in intensive street use, even as extensive street use declined due to stay-at-home orders or similar restrictions. Localities are now considering whether to extend “temporary” measures such as limiting motor vehicle access on streets in favour of more pedestrian and cycling use or revert back to pre-COVID use patterns.
The session, which is part of the International Geographical Union, Paris, 18-22 July 2022, seeks locally-derived and led solutions or policies that impact a municipal area, including, but not limited to: changes in modal choices supported by policy or budget, COVID-19 mitigation strategies as reflected in transportation geography, the mitigation of impacts of lessened ridership or declining funds to transit, or changes in investment strategies for transportation and their geographic impacts.
Sponsored by the IGU Transport and Geography Commission.
