Description

The environment and policies affecting it will remain major issues of concern in the 1990s. This book presents the current thinking from leading authorities worldwide on transport and the environment and focuses on the link between transport supply and use and environmental degradation. Part I of the book contains four chapters examining the underlying environmental problems associated with modern transport systems, the institutional response to these problems in the UK and the USA and the role that international agencies can play. Part II explores the response of the motor and airline industries, two of the major users of resources in the transport sector and the role of both governmental and non-governmental agencies. Part III takes a more detailed look at the development of analytical techniques for the valuation and control of environmental problems, including the role of investment decisions, regulation and market forces in ensuring sustainable development. The emphasis throughout is on pollution aspects and economic sustainability as these two key issues relate to transport and the environment. The scope is international and cross-disciplinary and includes contributions from policy decision makers as well as key academic researchers.
