[en] Air pollution is a major concern in urban areas worldwide. It is not only a hazard to the environment but also on human health. Many argue that a compact city is the desirable urban form in the context of sustainability due to shorter travelling distances and reduced conversion of land. If considering not only the environmental pillar of sustainability in terms of total emissions but also the social one comprising human exposure and social well-being, the argumentation might change. The question we ask is whether selected common transport policies are efficient solutions to overcome the environmental and social challenge? In order to investigate this question, we developed a modelling system in order to test the impacts of different transport policies, either on the urban structure itself or on traffic flows and respectively on air quality.
