This brochure focuses on the automotive sector developments and governmental responses, as well as provides insights on the activities’ development performed by intergovernmental bodies of UNECE to enable assisted and automated driving as of September 2021. It further includes a short section aimed at providing clarity about various myths.
The European Code for Inland Waterways (CEVNI) contains the core rules applicable to the traffic on inland waterways in the UNECE region such as marks and draught scales on vessels, visual signals on vessels, sound signals and radiotelephony, waterway signs and markings, rules of the road, berthing rules, signalling and reporting requirements as well as prevention of pollution of water and
The rapid development of high-speed rail (HSR) networks has been observed worldwide in recent years. The experience of states operating these systems demonstrates that they are setting new standards of quality and contributing to the renaissance of railway as a mode of transport. The development of an HSR network in the TER region would significantly improve the competitiveness of rail,
The construction and maintenance of road infrastructure is an important area of most countries’ national economies, but also one of the least digitized sub-sectors. It suffers from the presence of systemic shortcomings including an insufficient level of cooperation, inadequate information management, and limited investment in technology, research and development. These shortcomings often result
The Trans-European North-South Motorway (TEM) Project was initiated to facilitate road traffic in Central, Eastern and South-Eastern Europe and to assist with the process of integrating European transport infrastructure systems. One of the objectives of the Project is to improve the road network’s management. This report aims to provide TEM member countries with up-to-date information about how
The Trans-European North-South Motorway (TEM) Project was initiated to facilitate road traffic in Central, Eastern and South-Eastern Europe and to assist with the process of integrating European transport infrastructure systems. In order to improve the road network’s management, the Project provides TEM member countries with benchmarking of the current capacities of asset management, with up-to-
The Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has placed our increasingly interconnected world in an unprecedented situation. This crisis has generated human distress and an economic downturn that is impacting global efforts to improve livelihoods and achieve the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). As the early response to restraining the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic has shown, limited
The pan-European recommendations for inland navigation vessels aim to establish a harmonized regime of technical requirements for vessels that transport goods and passengers internationally. The recommendations are the result of Government efforts to unify divergent regulations in force in different intergovernmental organizations and ECE member countries. The recommendations were first adopted
Member States in the ECE and WHO European Region established the Transport,Health and Environment Pan European Programme (THE PEP) in 2002. By providing an intersectoral and intergovernmental policy framework, THE PEP promotes mobility and transport strategies that integrate environmental and health concerns. Over the years, THE PEP has led to the development of implementation mechanisms to
Mobility as a Service (MaaS) is a new mobility concept gaining pace in many cities around the world. Its value proposition concerns integration of mobility services which is realized by providing trip planning and one-stop fare purchase for the user through a single platform.Since MaaS is only emerging, the analysis of real-life demonstrations is still limited and, thus, evidence on the
Regional maps available here Extreme weather events, some of which are increasing in intensity and frequency, as well as slower onset climate changes (for example, sea level rise) and cumulative effects can result in transportation infrastructure damages, operational disruptions, and
The UNECE “White Paper on the progress, accomplishment and future of sustainable inland water transport” is the third edition of a policy paper on the current situation, trends and challenges in inland water transport on European inland waterways of international importance in the region of the Economic Commission for Europe.This third edition follows from the International Conference on
The United Nations Economic Commission for Europe has a long history of support for developing transport connections between Europe and Asia. The EATL project, Phase I (2002–2007), Phase II (2008–2012) and Phase III (2013–2017) made transport between Europe and Asia a reality. Phase III gathered 38 countries from Europe and Asia and concluded that road and rail transportation along Euro-
The European Code for Signs and Signals on Inland Waterways (SIGNI), adopted by resolution No. 90 of the Working Party on Inland Water Transport on 5 October 2018, provides recommendations for the competent authorities for the installation and application of buoyage and marking on European inland waterways contained in the fifth revision of CEVNI (ECE/TRANS/SC
The International Certificate for Operators of Pleasure Craft (ICC) which is issued in accordance with resolution No. 40, is recognized by more than 25 United Nations Member States in the ECE region and beyond. The Guidelines to resolution No. 40 are based on the frequently asked questions of administrations and recreational boaters in order to facilitate an
UNECE provides a common basis for harmonized traffic regulations on European waterways through the European Code for Inland Waterways (CEVNI), which contains the core uniform rules applicable to traffic on inland waterways. The fifth revised edition of CEVNI (CEVNI 5, available as PDF and
During recent decades governments all around the world were faced with a complicated set of options for investing in transport, including transport infrastructure. This publication examines main principles for determining the most appropriate models for financing transport infrastructure expenditures but also illustrates and analyses many innovative ways to finance transport infrastructure.
