From Griffith University: Oil Vulnerability and Cities

March 14, 2012 at 8:03 am Leave a comment

Drs. Jago Dodson and Neil Sipe will discuss concepts and methods for investigating oil vulnerability in metropolitan areas with examples from Australia, the U.S. and Canada. This will be followed by a wider discussion of regional planning and technological responses to oil vulnerability including the role of electric vehicles.

Associate Professor Jago Dodson is Director of the Urban Research Program, and Associate Professor Neil Sipe is the Discipline Head of the Urban & Environmental Planning Program, both at Griffith University (Brisbane, Australia). In recent collaborative research, the two have proposed methods for defining and mapping transport exclusion and oil vulnerability, and have co-authored “Shocking the Suburbs: Oil Vulnerability in the Australian City.” They are currently co-editing “Planning after Petroleum” due to be  published by Routledge later this year.
