Conceptual Framework for Cross-Sector Links


Transport is largely a derived demand and serves the needs of producers and consumers across the various sectors of the economy. Hence, business decisions taken by these non-transport sectors can have a major influence on passenger and freight travel patterns (particularly in terms of the numbers and location of trips). Yet these transport consequences and the impacts on traffic congestion, accidents, air pollution and CO2 emissions are rarely taken into account when these sectors develop their models for (public) service delivery and business models. This deliverable provides an initial conceptual framework to help address this problem.
