Climate Change and Transportation Planning
In developing the TMP, it is important to consider the relationship between transportation and climate change – one of the most pressing issues of our time. As a significant source of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, the transportation sector has a key role to play in reducing climate change. It is also vulnerable to the impacts of climate change. As such, measures to improve resiliency must be considered in the design, implementation, operation, and maintenance of transportation infrastructure.
The Climate Change and Transportation Planning discussion paper explores the relationship between transportation and climate change, including various strategies to mitigate and adapt to climate change.
