Alive2green publishes the Sustainable Transport and Mobility Handbook which is available for purchase.
Packed with contributions from South Africa’s leading industry experts and researchers, The Sustainable Transport and Mobility Handbook provides readers with practical insights into sustainable transport and Mobility designs, technologies, materials and solutions relevant in the South African context. The Sustainable Transport and Mobility Handbook is a Peer Reviewed publication and forms the basis of the learning material for our soon to be launched Online Education Courses.
Alive2green is in the process of compiling The Sustainable Transport and Mobility Handbook Volume 3.
Volume 2 of the Sustainable Transport and Mobility Handbook draws from the success of Volume 1 and from the Sustainable Transport and Mobility Conference held recently at Gallagher Estate. The publications profile is further increased within academic, research and consulting circles with the advent of a Peer-Review Board which reviewed, approved and submitted for publication no less than half of the 11 chapters in the Handbook, thereby offering more value for industry and professional readers. This means that the publication can be more widely recommended (and used) as a reference source and as a learning text for related education institutions, providing more value for readers and advertisers.

Our cities and towns are growing at an alarming rate and the need for transport and mobility solutions that are viable and sustainable has never been greater. We are now required to radically rethink how we transport ourselves and our goods.
Now add the supreme challenge of global climate change as transport accounts for approximately 35% of green house gas emissions globally – so much attention will be focused on this important sector in the short to medium term.
Increased government and industry regulation around emissions, safety and efficiency is aimed at:
• increasing transport and mobility capacity
• reducing time spent traveling
• avoiding new construction interventions
• increasing safety
• reducing vehicle pollutants (such as CO2 and oil)
