The climate crisis now requires a daunting scale of response if global commitments on emissions reduction are to be met. However, much of the analysis to date has focussed on top-down assessments of what needs to happen with limited understanding of what this means on the ground.
Special Issue Information: This ‘place-based decarbonisation’ for transport special issue presents an opportunity for authors to publish their cutting-edge accounts of empirical research, review papers, theoretical contributions, and practitioner papers from across the world which make a theoretical and/or novel empirical contribution to the understanding of how to decarbonize transport in a range of different contexts and recognising the importance of how local context interacts with decarbonisation as a complex multi-scalar issue. The topics covered in this special issue will include but are not limited to transport decarbonisation and societal readiness, policies and policy packages, fairness and justice, governance and the interface with spatial planning. Place as a lens involves thinking about location, locale, meaning and attachment. Place is not synonymous with local or bottom up but instead, a recognition of the importance of how local context interacts with decarbonisation as a complex multi-scalar issue. The Special Issue encourages the submission of papers from across the world which make a theoretical and/or novel empirical contribution to the understanding of how to decarbonize transport in a range of different contexts.
Guest editors: Dr Samarthia Thankappan, University of York and Prof Greg Marsden, University of Leeds ITS
