The present state of local transport phenomena in high temperature plasmas is reviewed briefly. The paper is divided into seven short sections, beginning with theoretical considerations, and moving on to the common features of heat transport in a tokamak, recent results on the scaling of the transport with normalised Larmor radius and the dependence of the transport on the current profile. The role of the off-diagonal terms in the transport matrix is then discussed and the information given by the L-H transition is examined. The main requirements for the development of an accurate, comprehensive model describing all the diverse phenomena are given in the summary.
