About the Lecture

State DOTs are under stress, and the Highway Trust Fund (HTF), the primary Federal source of funding for U.S. roads, relies on insufficient gas tax receipts. Road funding may continue to face economic deficiency issues amidst our mobility revolution.

Opening remarks and a panel discussion with professional experts on transportation policy will follow the student’s presentation led by Dr. William Chernicoff, Senior Manager –Global Research & Innovation at Toyota Mobility Foundation and Professor Deborah Bleviss, Director of the SAIS ERE Program.

The SAIS ERE practicum is a partnership between students at Johns Hopkins SAIS and participants in the public, private and NGO sectors. For this presentation, six ERE students will present their research findings from their collaborative research with Toyota Motor North America.

Only when I saw the Earth from space, in all its ineffable beauty and fragility, did I realize that humankind's most urgent task is to cherish and preserve it for future generations.
