Resumo

The growth and prosperity of cities and urban areas is propelled by advantages ofagglomeration. At the same time cities around the world, and in particular cities indeveloping countries and emerging economies such as Brasil, struggle with social andeconomic negative consequences of rapid urbanization and motorisation. Governmentsstruggle with policies to address the urban transport crisis associated with severecongestion, air pollution, sprawling metropolitan areas. The advantages anddisadvantages are not equally experienced by all members of the population. Groupsthat benefit from having high levels of access to opportunities and better connections arenot the same who experience the burdens such as congestion and poor air quality. Thisis a globally recurring issue, despite considerable differences between urban areasworldwide in terms of economic context, spatial planning and infrastructure provision.This workshop aims to discuss the complex relationships between transport,urbanization, inequalities in accessibility and air pollution, and the governance and policyimplications of the development of smart and equitable cities and transport policies. Theworkshop focuses on major cities and metropolitan areas in Europe, North America andBrasil. The conference will bring together leading researchers from Europe, North-America and Brazil. (AU)
