* How to meet the need for development without the detrimental impacts from transport on air quality, climate and land use * An invaluable sourcebook of major contributions to the debate * Essential reading for transport planners, development economists and environmentalists It is becoming increasingly urgent to reduce carbon dioxide emissions, control the spread of new infrastructure and consider the value of life for future generations, the poor and those deprived of human rights by planning systems that place economics above environmental and social justice. This book highlights creative work on world transport policy - a major contributor to environmental and social degradation - and suggests practical initiatives to achieve a reduction in global dependency on cars, lorries and aircraft. It includes international contributions that honestly evaluate the track record of transport planning, engineering and economics, which cut across traditional disciplinary boundaries.
