Summary
"Sustainability has become an important issue in transportation and infrastructure development projects. While several agencies are trying to incorporate a range of sustainability measures in their goals and missions, only a few planning agencies have been able to implement these policies and they are far from perfect. The low rate of success in implementing sustainable policies is primarily due to incomplete understanding of the system and the interaction between various elements of the system. The conventional planning efforts focuses mainly on performance measures pertaining to the system and its impact on the environment but seldom on the social and economic impacts. The objective of this study is to first, determine the effect of project typology and selection on sustainable economic development and sustainable outcome. Second, it is to determine the elements of sustainability, various uncertainties, and risks associated with the projects. Third, it is to demostrate [sic] a feasible methodology to evaluate sustainability parameters and uncertainties and risks using relevant frameworks and analyses. Finally, provide decision makers with support tools and frameworks to help evaluate and incorporate policies and considerations in planning efforts in accordance with the regional goals and objectives"--Abstract, p. iv
