Air QUality Impact on Transport choices (A-QUIT)
Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB)
“The proposed project aims to assess the impact of air quality and extreme weather events on shift in travel behaviour and market choices for purchasing vehicles in Delhi. The study will help in understanding the impact on contribution of transport sector towards emission levels due to the perceived shifts in travel behaviour and identify practices to address the short term change in travel demand in sustainable way."
Towards an Integrated Global Transport and Health Assessment Tool (TIGTHAT)
Indian Institute of Technology Delhi
“In this project we lay the scientific foundations of a health impact assessment (HIA) tool that will be readily applied to a wide variety of urban settings in Low or Middle Income Countries (LMICs) to estimate health impacts of transport choices.”
