Toolbox of Action for Cycling Promotion based on best available experience from the countries of the Pan-European Region

WHO publication on walking and cycling

In some countries in the pan-European region, cycling is not viewed as an equal mode of transport and is not fully incorporated into national policies on transport, health and environment, nor, in many cases, is it included in curriculums for future town planners. A systematic plan, adopted internationally, will help national and local stakeholders streamline their efforts to promote cycling in order to address the aforementioned issues. National cycling plans are strategically important policy documents, providing a framework for expanding cycling at various policy levels and supporting regional and local authorities’ efforts.
