Transport and Sustainability

Global demand for transport is ever increasing and its effects – both positive and negative – touch almost every aspect of modern life in evermore dramatic ways. Transport’s relationship with the complex concept of sustainability is thus of major concern world-wide; Transport and Sustainability addresses this important nexus between transport and sustainability. It contains volumes dealing with a wide range of issues relating to transport, its impact in economic, social and environmental spheres, and its interaction with other policy sectors.

Editors and authors take a wide range of approaches – some volumes are general and some specific in nature, and analyses are advanced from a host of different disciplinary backgrounds and perspectives – but the defining feature is that each contribution is grounded in a firm appreciation of how its contents relate to the broader imperatives associated with transport and sustainability.

Coverage includes, but is not restricted to:

  • All the mechanised transport modes, namely road, rail, maritime and aviation
  • ‘Active’ forms of transport, most notably cycling and walking
  • Policy and governance issues regarding transport’s relationship with inter-related public policy areas
  • Transport futures, especially in the context of transport’s emerging relationship with ICTs
    ‘mobilities’ concerns associated with sociological, behavioural and spatial aspects of travel and transport
