In September 2005, Dr Jillian Anable together with Dr Ben Lane and Dr Tanika Kelay were commissioned by the UK Department for Transport to undertake an Evidence based review of public attitudes to climate change and travel behaviour.

The overall objectives were to improve the evidence base for policy decisions concerning:

1) How climate change knowledge and awareness relates to transport decision-making, attitudes and behaviours amongst the public;

2) The nature and impact of interventions aimed at altering attitudes and behaviours in relation to climate change issues;

3) The identification of research methods (including measures and data sources) pertinent to these issues;

4) The identification of evidence gaps worthy of further research.

This review has now been published and a summary and full report can be accessed at:
