CIF's main purpose is to contribute to economic development and growth, integration at regional level and poverty reduction through the mobilisation of resources for strategic economic infrastructure projects and for support to the private sector.
This paper, prepared as background material for the Lifelines report on infrastructure resilience, summarizes the main findings on the risk faced by transport networks and users as a result of natural disasters and climate change, and the main recommendations for building more resilient transport networks.
This report sets out several of the recent advances, and suggests the most promising approaches, to the quantification and valuation of some of the wider economic benefits that flow from transport-related development.
This report discusses whether public-private partnerships (PPPs) are better than conventional public provision and can ensure proper maintenance, timely expansion, and less congestion.
This paper is a collaboration between the World Bank’s Transport Global Practice, the World Bank’s Energy Sector Management Assistance Program (ESMAP) and the International Association of Public Transport (UITP) to assemble evidence, viewpoints, and analysis on eMobility programs.
The data presented in this report show that progress has been achieved in important areas such as legislation, vehicle standards and improving access to post-crash care. This progress has not, however, occurred at a pace fast enough to compensate for the rising population and rapid motorization of transport taking place in many parts of the world.
This brief outlines whyaddressing inefficiencies must be a priority across the entire system of interconnected roads, railroads, ports, and airports, in any given area.
This brief explores how to ensure that today's mobility needs are not met at the expense of future generations
This note provides examples of the synergies and trade-offs a policy-maker should consider and manage in order to achieve sustainable mobility
Globally, governments are accountable for the development of infrastructure and the delivery of basic services in an affordable and inclusive manner. The ability of governments to nurture a conducive enabling environment for infrastructure investment has often been found to be a key differentiator between countries that successfully scale up infrastructure and those that face challenges in doing so.
The PPP Risk Allocation Tool 2019 Edition is now open for consultation. Feedback provided through this process will inform the final version which will be released later this year.
The purpose of these principles is to help government work with private sector partners to finance and bring to fruition projects in areas of vital economic importance, such as transport, water and power supply and telecommunications.
This report examines the issues that need to be considered before the decision to proceed to costly expansions with long-life spans and a structural influence on the local and national economy, drawing insights from a major port expansion project in Chile.
The Port Reform Toolkit is aimed to provide policymakers and practitioners with effective decision support in undertaking sustainable and well-considered reforms of public institutions that provide, direct, and regulate port services in developing countries.
The Toolkit is a reference guide for public authorities in developing countries for the development of PPP programs in the highways sector, particularly in assisting in PPP policy development, project preparation and the sourcing and more.
The Guidance Note, developed by the GI Hub in collaboration with Cambridge Economic Policy Associates Limited (CEPA), identifies lessons learned from various existing NIBs in both emerging markets and high-income countries through 11 case studies which explore different NIBs that have existed from 1945.
The Guidance Note’s overall aim is to help accelerate the flow of quality infrastructure projects, including through mobilising private capital and supporting project preparation. The analysis has sought to identify some of the unique niches and roles that such institutions can occupy and play in support of government objectives and policies in these areas.
The performance of an urban road system can be defined according to different thematic areas such as traffic flow, accessibility, maintenance and safety, for which the scientific literature proposes different measurement indicators.
We reviewed existing literature, conducted case studies and interviews, and found that the smart cities context has transformed traditional ITS into “smart mobility” with three major characteristics: people-centric, data-driven, and powered by bottom-up innovations.
This handbook synthesises and disseminates knowledge to inform the planning, implementation, and operations of urban rail projects.
