Sustainable transport

By SDRN on 7th March 2007
Found in: Research and Resources

The first of SDRN’s new Research into Practice workstreams launched earlier this year with a focus on Sustainable Transport.

Transport is one of the major contributors to carbon emissions and it is recognised that a significant reduction will be required to reduce emissions to sustainable levels. There are also broader problems associated with transport which have social, environmental and economic impacts: non-carbon emissions, air quality, noise, congestion, social cohesion, community severance and accessibility to a full range of service for some sections of society.

Running for the three year duration of the third phase of SDRN, the Engineering and Sustainable Development workstream will consider how engineers and natural and social scientists can work together to put sustainable development into practice.
