Strategies for Climate Change to take into Account Cultural Considerations on Transportation Projects
How are (or will) strategies for climate change take into account cultural considerations, especially with respect to environmental justice populations and historic values/historic preservation, on transportation projects?
Improvement of Models/Methodologies with Respect to Sensitivity to Greenhouse Gas Mitigation Strategies
How can models and methodologies be improved with respect to sensitivity to mitigation strategies such as land use and pricing; greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions; how to quantify GHGs/carbon, and approaches…
How can we facilitate wildlife movement vis-a-vis transportation networks and transportation planning in the face of climate change?
How will we address uncertainty related to climate change impacts (esp cumulative impacts) in environmental impact analysis, planning, policy, etc.?
Linking Energy and Environmental Modeling to Energy Efficiency Decisionmaking Across States, Regions, Projects
How can energy and environmental modeling be linked to support decisionmaking aimed at energy efficiency for different scales, state plans, MPO plans, and project alternative analysis?
What strategies including incentives and reducing VMT could be explored to build local economies (goods/services) to reduce VMT, increase livability measures and minimize energy use?
Communicating Messages on Climate Change and Energy to Decision-Makers, Transportation Practitioners, System Users
What messages on climate change and energy are most effective with what audiences: decision-makers, transportation practitioners, system users? How can we communicate effects, provide options/incentives, policies (i.e., pricing)?
How can we address livability in NEPA and other cross-cutting legislation?
