The International Transport Forum carries out a quarterly exercise collecting data on the short term evolution of the transport sector amongst our 57 member countries to foresee trends in the sector as a result of economic down or upturn.
This report sets out several recent advances and describes efforts to improve the quality of Transport Cost-benefit analysis (CBA) and its applicability to decision-making.
It addresses the growing worldwide interest in the use of light rail metro transit (LRMT) schemes to provide urban transport solutions and reviews the potential use of public-private partnership (PPP).
The core principle behind the PPP is the creation of a contractual bubble – a framework of contracts.
Large-scale port projects have big impacts on the local economy and affect the way that the regional and national economy operates, with major implications for investment in regional transport systems.
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.
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.
