Maritime Transport and Regional Sustainability is a critical examination on how the maritime transport sector helps regions to achieve their sustainability goals, especially focusing on the challenges posed by climate change. This book analyzes maritime transport from multiple perspectives, establishing a strong theoretical framework drawn on evidence from both the developed and emerging economies across the globe. It identifies commonalities that contribute to a coherent transportregion relationship, including how maritime operations, planning, and management impact regional governance. Tracing the vital threads linking transport to its regional surroundings, Maritime Transport and Regional Sustainability analyses the major issues and challenges that maritime transport researchers, planners, and policymakers are facing.

  • Offers the latest original research and theory for transfer into practice

  • Applies evidence and theory drawn from cases across the globe

  • Assesses major governmental maritime infrastructure initiatives and their relation to sustainability
