Transportation and Infrastructures’ Sustainability In Ultra-Peripheral Territories: Studies Over The Azores Region

Transportation and infrastructures’ Sustainability in insular territories is pivotal for regional success. Moreover, it is a fact these issues have clear impacts on the regional economy, including consequences on resource efficiency, population density, internal market dynamics, and the necessity to have multiple structural infrastructures, such as ports, airports, health units, among several other public services. In this regard, throughout testing tools, the present investigation used accessibility and connectivity indicators over four Azorean Islands to evaluate the impacts over the social-economic sphere that the local transportation and infrastructures may have over the regional residents. Accordingly, it was observed that the Island of São Miguel has more satisfying accessibility patterns within the four studied Islands of Azores Archipelago.
