Description - European Transport Policy and Sustainable Mobility by Jonas Akerman
It is now widely accepted that transport is becoming increasingly unsustainable and that strong policy intervention is required to reduce both the growth in transport demand and the environmental costs of transport. This book challenges conventional approaches to transport by moving away from trend based analysis towards the use of scenarios to identify alternative sustainable transport futures. It both summaries the development of EU transport policy and presents a critique. The policy context is widened to include the global changes taking place in economics, society and technology. It develops new methodologies for policy making for the next 25 years. This book is directed at researchers, transport professionals, policymakers and students who are interested in creating a sustainable future for transportation in Europe and beyond. This book arose from the European Commission research project, Policy Scenarios for Sustainable Mobilty (POSSUM) which was co-ordinated by David Banister, Professor of Transport Planning at University College London.
