Poverty mapping and sustainable transport: A neglected dimension.
Building upon work conducted for the UNHabitat on the social sustainability of urban mobility and for UNECLAC on transport poverty in Latin America, this paper identifies the utility of poverty mapping in developing sustainable transport systems. The fit between transport alignments and contemporary poverty mappings is rarely considered in the design of transport systems funded or leveraged through the public purse. Given a present world of severe public finance constraints, this gap requires attention. Furthermore, the tension between the funding of expanded mobility and the funding of enhanced local accessibility to services within a digitalized environment requires a more thorough consideration than previously afforded by the literature. This article uses case examples to explore these hitherto professionally neglected dimensions.
