This presents the evidence of change in Indian cities – however small they may seem today. This captures actual policy decision and action in cities for clean air, public transport, walking and cycling, intermediate public transport, and car restraint initiatives like parking and fiscal measures. The challenge now is to learn from these experiences and to upscale the practices so that we can have the great leapfrog – move from cars to no cars, from pollution to clean air.

Slow Murder
$ 19.00
Out of stock
Documents the deadly story of air pollution caused by vehicles. Vehicular pollution is no longer just an intangible threat in India - it contributes to a shocking 64 per cent of the total pollution in Delhi, 52 per cent in Mumbai and 30 per cent in Kolkata. In just seven years, the number of vehicles in India has shot up by 17 million and 48 per cent of these vehicles are in the three metros alone. Bad vehicular technology, poor fuel quality, poor vehicle maintenance, non-existent traffic planning and confused governance work together to discount public health.
