Project Title: Modal Shift to Reduce Carbon in Transport
Funding Agency: Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland & Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport
Duration: 12 months
The transport sector in Ireland, like in most other countries, is responsible for a high proportion of emissions. Traditionally, much of the focus has been on building new infrastructure and investment in public transport, walking and cycling to reduce these emissions. Little attention has been paid to changing underlying transport behaviours’ and trying to understand this behaviour.
This project aims to examine low-cost behavioural change projects that have been successful internationally and determine if they could be successful in Ireland. A key element of the project will be to produce new methods to evaluate the potential success of behavioural change projects and supplement the work currently being conducted on the economic evaluation of transport projects. The project will produce a list of potential pilot projects that could be launched in Ireland and how to leverage the greatest return on any potential pilot projects.
The successful candidates will also be expected to take on a number or administration duties in relation to the project.
