After reviewing the current knowledge on the relationship between speed and crash risk, this report analyses eleven cases from ten countries that have recently changed speed limits or introduced a large-scale automatic speed control. The. Noise Management The goal of noise management is to maintain low noise exposures, such that human health and well-being are protected.

Economic textbooks predict that taxes and emission trading systems are the cheapest way for societies to reduce emissions of CO2. This book shows that this is also the case in the real world.
It estimates the costs to society of reducing CO2 emissions in 15 countries using a broad range of policy instruments in 5 of the sectors that generate. This report sets out the challenge for freshwater in a changing climate and provides policy guidance on how to navigate this new 'waterscape'.
It highlights the range of expected changes in the water cycle and the challenge of making practical, on-site adaptation decisions for water.
