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 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 discusses whether public-private partnerships (PPPs) are better than conventional public provision and can ensure proper maintenance, timely expansion, and less congestion.
Most infrastructure investment plans and government policies rely on the delivery of projects and programs. To achieve these and unlock the real benefits of infrastructure, it is vital that projects and programs are delivered well.
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.
This paper compares two approaches to the evaluation of mega transport project success: the iron triangle and the holistic approach approach.
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.
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 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 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.
Focused on the electricity system, BloombergNEF s (BNEF s) New Energy Outlook (NEO) combines the expertise of over 65 market and technology specialists in 12 countries to provide a unique view of how the market will evolve. Each year BNEF makes a number of changes to NEO as they strive to improve the completeness and complexity of their analysis. Click on the link to BNEF s website to see the 10 key findings.
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.
This report reviews experiences with strategic infrastructure planning with a view to identifying international best practices.
This note provides examples of the synergies and trade-offs a policy-maker should consider and manage in order to achieve sustainable mobility
The purpose of this study is to provide an overview of the main elements that should be taken into consideration when evaluating the potential for specific projects, it is important to give some indication of potential cost (capital and operating) of an LNG chain.
This guidance tool has been developed for governments that wish to enhance the viability of their PPP infrastructure projects.
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.
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.
