Abstract

The goals of this contribution are to disclose the motivations of cities which underlie their climate protection strategies in the transport sector and to analyze the influence of cityspecific factors on the associated decisionmaking processes. A most similar systems design is used for case studies in three major German cities (Frankfurt, Stuttgart, Munich), which have differently advanced climate protection programmes in the transport sector. Our research revealed that the main motivation for local measures which contribute to climate protection in the transport sector is rarely the reduction of GHG emissions. Local problems are dominating transport policies. We notice that cities are not always aware of specific local factors and of how these factors influence the outcomes of their transport policies. Another very important lesson learned from our analysis is that the methods for measuring and comparing the success of urban climate protection need substantial progress.
