Workshop on Improving Transport Planning and Investment Through the Use of Accessibility Indices
This Workshop will bring together a range of stakeholders and experts to share their experiences in operationalising accessibility indicators and discuss the key issues and challenges for developing accessibility-oriented policy frameworks. Its objectives are to:
- Analyse the capacity of different types of accessibility indices to capture interaction between land use and transport systems and accurately reflect access to employment, goods and services spatially and for different groups;
- Identify best-practices and provide guidelines on how to operationalise accessibility indicators for improving spatial planning and increase coordination between land-use, housing and transport policies;
- Deepen understanding of how incorporating accessibility indicators could guide investment decisions and aid in establishing priorities for designing and implementing schemes that effectively increase access to opportunities; and
- Set out the challenges and possible solutions for progressively incorporating more sophisticated and accurate accessibility indices into the policy framework.
Participation in the workshop is by invitation only. Video recordings of the presentations and chair's the concluding remarks will be made available online on the project page. A full outline and agenda is available as pdf below.
