Application of Sustainable Transport Tools in Central Area - Baghdad City

Areej M. Abdulwahab | Sady A. Tayh | Nabil T. Ismael

Abstract: To enable a sustainable transport system in a city, there are many tools used in transportation planning. The most common tools are used within the so-called Transport Demand Management (TDM) Strategy. Bab Al-Moatham represents the most important center of Baghdad city. It includes a variety of activities with a high population concentration. This research shows the possibility of applying sustainable transport tools in the study area by adopting planning tools for sustainable transport. SWOT analysis has been applied to identify internal and external environment measures of the study area. The main strength point of the study area is the geographical location as an economic, administrative and educational center, while the main weakness points are weak infrastructures and technology for the transport system in general and for the study area in particular, as well as the lack of a strategy for development of the area depending on sustainable transport. The opportunities available are the attractive environment for transport as a result of the existence of multiple events, while the most important risk is the lack of funding and investment in the transport sector and the absence of laws and regulations concerned with sustainable transport.
