CIERP Publishes the Proceedings and Discussions from its Future of Transportation Symposium


This discussion paper summarizes the proceedings of the January 11, 2018 symposium, “The Future of Transportation,” hosted at The Fletcher School by the Climate Policy Lab and Acadia Center, a nonprofit organization focused on advancing the clean energy future. Considering the importance of finding sustainable models for transportation that reduce climate impacts, this was an opportunity for academics, advocates, company leaders, and state, regional, and municipal decisionmakers to examine the relevant issues, with a focus on New England. Topics included the prospects of regional market-based solutions, advanced transportation technologies, and innovations in transportation accessibility and design to reduce carbon pollution from the transportation sector. This paper aims to capture and offer to a broader audience the discussions that took place at the symposium, thereby fostering further discussion and action to address the challenges and opportunities that exist in meeting transportation, climate, and energy goals.
