Abstract

Walking is, along with cycling, the most sustainable, democratic and healthy transportation mode to travel within a city (Tonucci, 2004; Gehl, 2011). For this reason, walking should be promoted through planning and urban design. In fact, in Chile, the recent National Urban Development Policy (2014) sets out the promotion of pedestrian traffic as an urban mobility objective. This research analyzes the deficiencies and challenges of urban planning and street design in Chile, making a comparative analysis with instruments and urban design standards in Germany which promote pedestrians in the city. Thus, best practices and planning tools are analyzed in depth from case studies that have promoted walking, such as minimum standards, design guidelines, traffic calming and participatory processes, among others. This paper concludes with a proposal of instruments, recommendations and urban design standards to promote the development of pedestrian-oriented streets in Chile and thus a more sustainable urban development.
