  2. Sustainable and Efficient Transport

    Sustainable and Efficient Transport

    Edited by Ellen Eftestøl-Wilhelmsson, Suvi Sankari, Anu Bask
    The EU Commission has set the goal of facilitating a competitive transport system, increasing mobility and supporting growth while simultaneously reaching a target of 60 per cent emissions reductions by 2050. In light of past performance and estimated development, the target will not be reached without further behavioural change in the transport sector. This interdisciplinary book examines how such a behavioural shift can be achieved by various organizational and legal means, focusing primarily on the European Union and its specific policies related to greening transport.

  10. The Evaluation of Complex Infrastructure Projects

    The Evaluation of Complex Infrastructure Projects

    Lasse Gerrits, Stefan Verweij
    Infrastructure projects are notoriously hard to manage so it is important that society learns from the successes and mistakes made over time. However, most evaluation methods run into a conundrum: either they cover a large number of projects but have little to say about their details, or they focus on detailed single-case studies with little in terms of applicability elsewhere. This book presents Qualitative Comparative Analysis (QCA) as an alternative evaluation method that solves the conundrum to enhance learning. Learn More

  15. How Great Cities Happen

    How Great Cities Happen

    John Stanley, Janet Stanley, Roslynne Hansen
    Urban planners in developed countries are pushing hard for closer integration of land use and transport. At the same time, gaps in knowledge and understanding are becoming more apparent, as the traditional focus has been on the shape of the city, rather than how it functions as a place to live and visit. How Great Cities Happen addresses this challenge by developing a wider, all-encompassing agenda for more productive, inclusive and sustainable cities. Learn More
