The GSR Collection

The third edition of this biennial flagship report tells the global and regional stories of where we are and where we need to get to urgently on climate and sustainability action for transport and mobility. With contributions from 100 world-class experts and organisations, the GSR is a one-stop shop for the latest available data, trends, targets and developments on transport demand, emissions and policies. The GSR equips decision makers towards knowledge-based action and aims to raise ambition in transport policy and investment for people and the planet.

The sections of this biennial report were gradually released in modules, up to the final release of the full report and its Takeaways for Decision Makers in September 2023. Additionally, a series of thematic, sectoral and regional briefs, infographics, country factsheets and podcasts convey the report’s findings and their implications for transport, climate and sustainability.
