Globalisation, Transport and the Environment

By Nils-Axel Braathens

What impact has globalization had on transport? And what have been the consequences for the environment? To answer these questions, this book looks in detail at how globalization has affected activity levels in maritime shipping, aviation, and road and rail freight. It assesses the impact these changes have had on the environment. The book also discusses policy instruments that can be used to address negative environmental impacts, both from an economic perspective and from the point of view of international law.
