socio-economic characteristics of the areas studied. The chapter concludes with a re view of the urban form features of the case study cities and neighbourhoods, and. 4. The Spatial Constraints of Urban Transportation. The amount of urban land allocated to transportation is often correlated with the level of mobility. In the pre-automobile era, about 10% of the urban land was devoted to transportation, which was simply roads for dominantly pedestrian traffic.   For urban areas, these cost savings could become even higher due to the urban heat island effect. Socio-economic Structure Impacts of Climate Change on Different Sectors of the Urban Economy. Estimating the impact of climate change on the urban economy is complex, and scientific studies on this subject are by: 1. Transportation accounts for 18% of global fossil fuel carbon dioxide (FFCO2) emissions, especially in urban areas. An improved understanding of on-road FFCO2 emissions is essential to both carbon science and mitigation policy. Previous studies have identified the driving factors and quantified their relationship to on-road FFCO2 emissions. However, they have been primarily based on case.

  A two-way fixed effect model was constructed to examine socio-economic impacts and impacts of urban form and transportation development on CO 2 emissions from transportation in China. The results indicated that the total and per capita CO 2 emissions from transportation were growing at an annual rate of % and %, respectively, and that.

INTRODUCTION Transportation is a vital function of human society. To a large extent, the economic and social development of nations is pivoted on transportation system. Transportation has in its scope “ all direct and indirect social and economic effects of transportation systems both within the transportation corridor and within the larger regions affected, including those bearing on present and future transportation needs and services.” T his scope now includes research in five primary areas: 1. nomic perspective and then describe some of the socio-economic con-cerns in planning and research in connection with highway construc-tion. The discussion of impact analysis will be from the community viewpoint, touching on economic development objectives and urban area impacts.

  Transportation factors including urban road density and the traffic coupling factor were both found to have exerted significant negative effects on CO 2 emission levels, indicating that increases in the coupling degree between urban spatial structure and traffic organization can also contribute to reducing such emissions.

SCOPE AND LIMITATION OF THE STUDY This research work is limited to only Ikole Local Government Area of Ekiti State with a view of finding the economic and social effect of rural-urban migration and creating. The current global trend knows a massive expansion of urban areas, this growth being actually generated by the numerical population growth and migration. Urban development determines changes regarding the organization of places, economic and social changes but these effects exceed the territorial barriers and generate a broad impact.
