Sustainable development and transport

Sustainable development has been hindered by a widely held notion that development can be defined primarily as economic growth; this has been the framework used for many years by developed countries to achieve their current levels of wealth, and major developing economies appear set to follow a similar course. The problem with such an approach is that: (a) economic growth does not necessarily guarantee social equity and (b) natural resources are exhaustible, both in terms of quality (e.g. environmental pollution) and supply (e.g. oil/ gas reserves) (Drexhage and Murphy, 2010).
