SUSTAINABILITY AND ACCEPTABILITY IN INFRASTRUCTURE DEVELOPMENT
The SAID document is a briefing paper, presenting a small selection of the findings and recommendations of the main report. The report was produced to examine the interaction between engineering, environment, economics and politics. It is designed to promote a dialogue to tackle the question of how to make infrastructure development sustainable and acceptable to the public. The first part of the report discusses issues of principle suggesting an overall philosophy for moving towards sustainability and acceptability. Part 2 is a review of the different categories of infrastructure, including all forms of transport, energy generation, water supply and waste disposal. An appendix is included giving details of the ideas received from those consulted. Hopes for the year 2015 are put forward in a further appendix with potential obstacles and suggestions for moving forward.
