A Companion to Transport, Space and Equity | Edward Elgar | Published : 2019


Karen Lucas, Nihan Akyelken and Janet Stanley put forward the livelihoods approach as a method for assessing the social impacts of transport projects in relation to the Sustainable Development Goals. A number of criteria are developed, including issues of social progress, distribution and justice, to help consider the requirements of different populations and areas into which projects might be introduced. Case study material is used from South Africa and Brazil.
