Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

It is a fact that the peripheral and ultra-peripheral regions as Borderlands or Islands present several territorial specificities. Nevertheless, these territories also present several obstacles, barriers, and opportunities. Among all those issues, appropriate infrastructure planning is necessary to answer the local populations' needs. Therefore, studies regarding transportation and infrastructure planning and sustainability assessment in those territories are fundamental to achieving sustained growth.

Contextually, the present Special Issue (SI) expects to cross and analyze the dynamics and challenges ongoing in those peripheral territories regarding transportation and infrastructure planning and sustainability and with the related issues that may impact it.

Consequently, the editors encourage the submission of studies associated with the topics of transportation and infrastructure planning in peripheral and ultra-peripheral regions, as well as with the associated governance strategies and methods, regional planning, among several other sub-topics that could relate to the main scope of this Special Issue and, consequently, produce a literature enhancement about this particular typology of territories.
