Abstract

The theme chosen for this issue (No. 71) is governance for sustainable development in the transport sector. Four articles, which focus on some of the issues in governance relevant to the transport sector and one best practice in the region, have been selected. The first discusses issues in governance to develop people centred cities in a globalizing world. Although the article does not directly relate to the transport sector, the basic issues and core principles of good urban governance discussed remain valid for the sector as well as for governments at all levels and public sector systems. The second discusses pricing and financing in transport as a political economy issue in governance and suggests alternative approaches to sustainable pricing and financing policies in the sector. The third is an example of a best practice in rural infrastructure development in the region. It discusses a new approach in planning and outlines procedures and practices to allocate the resources available to improve rural access and transport efficiently and effectively. The fourth is on the effectiveness of policy measures to contain energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions through reduction of transport demand in the Republic of Korea. All the articles are policy oriented.
