The World Economic Forum (WEF) recently established a prototype framework for integrated shared, electric, and automated mobility (SEAM) governance. In a white paper presenting the framework, the WEF stated that if first shared and electric (and later autonomous) vehicles are properly integrated, cities can reduce their emissions by up to 95% and free road space for other uses. The report pulls together successful policies from around the world showing cities how they can achieve this.
In the report, the WEF states that shared, electric, and automated mobility should be viewed as complementary features of an urban passenger mobility system of the near future and should be advanced through a governance approach that combines policies through a constructive stakeholder process. The SEAM Governance Framework Prototype suggested by WEF includes a four-step approach that can be led by a city.
