La crise du système de déplacements au Liban : une dépendance automobile systémique et coûteuse

Abstract : The Lebanese transport is characterized by a triple crisis of congestion, financing and sustainability. This crisis appears in an inefficient transport system: high and recurring level of traffic jams and an almost total absence of reliable alternatives to the private car.The objective of this thesis is to highlight the concept of car dependency through the prism of mobility practices, transport sector governance and territorial and socio-economic characteristics in Lebanon. It aims to explain this dependence in a systemic approach and it proposes solutions to moderate it. The systemic analysis considers that car dependency can be explained by the interaction of several factors: the country's territorial organization, socio-economic and cultural factors, transport supply and the modes of governance of the transport sector. Then, the thesis explores the challenges of moderating car dependency. It highlights the economic, social and environmental costs linked to excessive use of the car.Finally, the prospects for a possible moderation of car dependency in Lebanon and its practical directions are explored.
