Urban Transport in the Developing World. A Handbook of Policy and Practice

This book contains 20 chapters that provide a broad set of perspectives on the plight, possibilities and opportunities of urban transport in the developing world and set against the challenges of sustainable development. The contributors of the book expertly set the international context of transport policy-making and planning for developing cities and these contributors present a critical review of recent developments that have taken place that offer lessons for the future. The special features that distinguish this book are: its multiple institutional perspectives on transport in urban development of developing cities; its efforts to link sustainability with urban transport and other development concerns; and its understanding of the consequences of globalism in choices and obligations for urban transport. This book will prove invaluable for professional practitioners and academics to those countries that are engaged in and concerned with the future of movement in cities of the developing world. The book will also be of interest to students of urban transport and city planning particularly those from the developing world. Politicians, policy-makers and international development agencies and investors, as well as those working for international non-government organizations wishing to familiarize themselves with the mounting transportation challenges of developing cities will also find this book a source of inspiration.
