Ecologically Sustainable Transportation

Ecologically Sustainable Transportation: Planning, Building, and Operations provides transportation researchers, practitioners, and policy makers with a consistent and cohesive examination of the local, regional, and national environmental issues in sustainable transportation systems planning, development, and implementation. Ecologically Sustainable Transportation compiles numerous topics together in one resource to bridge the gap between the study and practice of these interdisciplinary fields. The book is an accessible resource for transportation professionals on basic ecology principles, connecting the academic and technical literature to the practice of transportation road ecology. Helping to define the environment component of sustainable transportation, Ecologically Sustainable Transportation focuses on ecological planning, mitigation, and monitoring in several dimensions of transportation systems. Engaging those who make transportation decisions currently or in the future, Ecologically Sustainable Transportation offers practical insights and guidance on the entire spectrum of road ecology issues within the context of sustainable transportation systems. Uniquely includes coverage of the relationship between road systems and climate change Targets the needs of both researchers and practitioners to support multiple levels of knowledge and expertise Interdisciplinary integration of transportation, sustainability, and ecological academic research with applied usage Teaching and learning aids such as case studies, chapter objectives, dialogue boxes, glossary, text boxes and online teaching resources

Transportation research has traditionally been dominated by engineering and logistics research approaches. This book integrates social, economic, and behavioral sciences into the transportation field. As its title indicates, emphasis is on socioeconomic changes, which increasingly govern the development of the transportation sector. The papers presented here originated at a conference on Social Change and Sustainable Transport held at the University of California at Berkeley in March 1999, under the auspices of the European Science Foundation and the National Science Foundation.

Cycling and walking are both essential components in sustainable transport strategy and are becoming an ever more important part of urban planning. There is now a wealth of international experience of how well sustainable planning works in practice and how it can be improved. With a wide range of contributions from America, Australia, Europe as well as the UK, Sustainable transport sums up many of the lessons learnt and how they can be applied in improved planning.

Asian Development Bank (ADB) is assisting the development of transport sector in the People's Republic of China since 1986, by providing lending and non-lending support. Considerable progress has been achieved since then. However, with volatile fuel prices and increasing greenhouse emissions, issues of affordability, environmental sustainability and resource optimization are becoming increasingly important. This paper analyses these key issues and recommends a new, target-oriented approach that places energy efficiency, environment, and health at the top of the policy agenda for transport

Transportation plays a substantial role in the modern world; it provides tremendous benefits to society, but it also imposes significant economic, social and environmental costs. Sustainable transport planning requires integrating environmental, social, and economic factors in order to develop optimal solutions to our many pressing issues, especially carbon emissions and climate change. This essential multi-authored work reflects a new sustainable transportation planning paradigm. It explores the concepts of sustainable development and sustainable transportation, describes practical techniques for comprehensive evaluation, provides

In Future Drive, Daniel Sperling addresses the adverse energy and environmental consequences of increased travel, and analyzes current initiatives to suggest strategies for creating a more environmentally benign system of transportation. Groundbreaking proposals are constructed around the idea of electric propulsion as the key to a sustainable transportation and energy system. Other essential elements include the ideas that: improving technology holds more promise than large-scale behavior modification technology initiatives must be matched with regulatory and policy initiatives government intervention should

Conventional approaches to mitigating transport's environmental impacts have used observed and projected transport trends and sought to assess the environmental impacts of these trends. Whilst this approach is acknowledged as useful, it is not perceived as capable of leading to meeting long-term environmental objectives. Accordingly the project on Environmentally Sustainable Transport (EST) was initiated in late 1994. The EST is a backcasting exercise. One or more desirable futures are defined and policy development is guided by an assessment of what is

Protected areas are at the centre of nature-based tourism, which is increasingly popular across the world. As visitor numbers increase, so does awareness of the harmful effects that large crowds may have on both natural resources and individuals’ recreational experience. This volume considers the challenge of transportation to and within natural and protected areas, the improvement of which has already been recognised as having great potential for mitigating the environmental impacts of ecotourism. While several books have focused considerable attention

This publication sets out the discussions of an OECD workshop, held in Berlin in December 2002, to address issues related to the implementation of Environmentally Sustainable Transport (EST) guidelines, endorsed by OECD Environment Ministers in 2001. Conclusions reached include that a combination of measures will be required to achieve real progress and overcome barriers to change effectively, including 'hard' measures (such as taxes, emission standards, speed limits, and other fiscal and regulatory instruments) and 'soft' measures (such as the provision of information
