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
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’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.
This report thus attempts to address the economic impact of road safety, while providing a comprehensive overview of the challenge in estimating the social impact of road traffic injuries (RTIs).
This document summarises the approach taken by Infrastructure Australia (IA) in assessing and prioritising initiatives and project proposals for placement on the Infrastructure Priority List (IPL).
This report addresses the critical question: how can the public and private sectors build successful partnerships?
This PPP checklist is an extension of the initial framework.
This second version of the PPP Reference Guide, as the first one, presents a global overview of the diversity of approaches and experiences in the implementation of PPPs and more.
