dc.description.abstractAsian cities, traditionally cities of walkers, are now experiencing exponential increase in motorization, which has limited the attention given to pedestrian and public transport facilities. A change in focus that will allow people, not vehicles, to reclaim the urban environment is required. The study provides information on the current pedestrian infrastructure in selected cities that can be used to develop and propose pedestrian-focused solutions for Asian cities. It includes results of field walkability surveys and pedestrian interviews, as well as an assessment of the current policies and institutions relating to pedestrians and walking environments in 13 Asian cities. It also recommends solutions involving various stakeholders who should play a role in developing policies and projects that are focused on improving the walkability of Asian cities.
