ANY PUBLIC POLICY TO ACHIEVE A SUSTAINABLE NETWORK ECONOMY?
KAN HET BELEID BIJDRAGEN AAN EEN DUURZAME NETWERKECONOMIE?
The rise in the energy intensity of the transport system implies an 'unsustainable' development. The main reason is the shift in the modal split towards the more polluting transport modes. The increasing value of time and a changing composition of freight make these transport modes more attractive. The issue is whether a spatial policy dedicated to transform transport flows can make some difference. (A) For the covering abstract of the conference see IRRD E203386.
