Transport Economists’ Group

Formed in 1973 the Group provides a forum for people involved in transport economics to meet regularly and discuss matters of mutual interest. Membership is open to both economists working in transport and all others whose work is connected with transport economics. The aim of the Group is to improve the quality of transport management, planning and decision making by promoting lectures, discussions and publications related to the economics of transport and of the environment within which the industry functions.

Next meeting Wednesday 28 October 2020, 18:00-19:30

Rachel Brisley & John Dora will speak on “The UK Climate Change Risk Assessment – where do we go from here?”


Despite the commitment to Net Zero the impacts of, and need to adapt to, climate change are becoming increasingly apparent. Transport infrastructure, and many of its operations, are exposed to the weather and hence to the impacts of climate change, including through wind, floods, erosion and collapse. The speakers will explain the trade-offs to balance objectives through a “triple bottom line” and the implications for decision-making in a COVID-19 and climate-aware world. For transport, this is likely to extend the scope of business cases and appraisal.

Rachel Brisley is Head of Low Carbon and Climate Resilience at Steer. John Dora is Global Adaptation Lead for ISO and Visiting Professor at the University of Surrey.
