BARCZAK, Rafael  e  DUARTE, Fábio. Environmental impacts of urban mobility: five categories of mitigating measures. urbe, Rev. Bras. Gest. Urbana [online]. 2012, vol.4, n.1, pp.13-32. ISSN 2175-3369.

Since 1970, in a world level emission of CO2 in industry has increased 65 percent; during the same period, it increased up to 120 percent in the transportation sector. And 80 percent of the energy used in urban mobility comes from fossil fuels. The motorization of urban mobility has therefore become one of the main sources of greenhouse gases. We propose here an analysis of this scenario based on papers published by international scientific journals between 1997 (Kyoto Protocol) and 2008 (Copenhage Conference), trying to map which are the main mitigating actions which have been advanced by the scientific community and technical reports by international agencies. We argue here that these actions could be grouped in five categories: financial and economical; regulatory; information and communication; urban planning; and technological.
