Prof Adrian Davis has written the chapter ‘Transport and health: a personal and UK perspective’ in the Handbook of Sustainable Transport.
This traces the development of transport and health as an inter-disciplinary field and how it has become allied to the case for demand management and sustainable mobility where health benefits to individuals are also beneficial at the societal and ecological levels.
Exploring the need for a sustainable transport paradigm, which has been sought after by local and national authorities internationally over the last 30 years, this illuminating and timely Handbook offers insights into how this can be secured more broadly and what it may involve, as well as the challenges that the sustainable transport approach faces. The Handbook offers readers a holistic understanding of the paradigm by drawing on a wide range of research and relevant case studies that showcase where the principles of sustainable transport have been implemented.
