    Many urban areas, both in the Global North and South, are becoming increasingly automobile-dominated and less sustainable. The need to take action is well recognized but all too often governance arrangements and the symbolism attached to automobility stand in the way. Drawing on international experience, this article summarizes some of the necessary preconditions of urban governance for promoting more sustainable urban transport in the Global South, highlights priority policy areas for action, reviews a range of key policy measures for promoting sustainable urban transport, and discusses the potential for transferring experience and practice from the Global North to the Global South.
