Seminar on Transportation and Logistics for Human Security in Asian Cities

4th International Seminar of Committee of Infrastructure Planning and Management in FY 2011

Title: “Seminar on Transportation and Logistics for Human Security in Asian Cities:
Perspective Towards Safer and Sustainable Transport Logistics”

Date: September 16, 2011 (14:00 – 17:00)
Venue: Jin-Yu Hall, C Cluster, Katsura Campus, Kyoto University

Outline: Transportation and logistics are keys to development, but are also responsible for a range of negative impacts such as the road accidents, traffic congestion and environmental degradation. Obtaining safe, secure and sustainable transportation is an immense challenge, and transport planners and managers are working hard on several policies to achieve it. For Asian cities, things have become more and more challenging due to recent unwarranted rise of traffic in all the three modes (Road, Water and Air) of transportation in these cities.

Scientific research studies can come up with innovative yet realistic approaches to deal with the challenges. But, it is also equally important to encourage public and private partnership to translate the research to field implementation.

This seminar aims at presenting
1. Scientific ideas to foster the safety, security and sustainability of the transportation and logistics schemes especially in concern to Asian cities.
2. Approaches to obtain public acceptability for implementation of such innovative ideas.

The overall objective is to create a platform for discussion among researchers in the field to exchange their knowledge, ideas and experiences that may direct towards further effective tools.

The seminar is an open seminar and all the related personnel are requested to participate.
