This toolkit is designed to help decision makers and practitioners in states and municipal governments who are concerned with urban transport development in medium-sized cities in India.
This study looks at the project practice in light of the strategy as declared in the sector paper. The main focus is on the first decade of the urban transport lending program (1972–82).
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 Global Tracking Framework is featured in the GlobalMobility Report which provides the first-ever assessment of all modes of transport across theglobe.
This paper studies the impacts of providing an efficient and affordable transport system within a country through the experience of the Philippines.
This paper presents three different approaches to quantifying postive and negative “additionalities” of cross-border transport infrastructure developments in GMS economic corridors.
This report provides a discussion on the relevance of measuring greenhouse gas emissions, particularly carbon dioxide (CO2).
The paper applies indicator calculations to three case studies of proposed bypass roads in Japan to evaluate their resilience.
This article presented an assessment of Low-Carvon Interventions in the Transport and Power Sector to reduceclimate change emissions
This Publication uses computable general equilibrium (CGE) methods to address how infrastructure developments in SASEC might affect the region's broader economy and the impact on income distribution and poverty.
This paper explains hard and soft barriers to trade in South Asia by analyzing transport links and trade facilitation issues.
This document outlines the strategy for Central Asia it envisions rail transport to become a mode of choice for trade: quick, efficient, accessible, and easy to use throughout Central Asia.
This paper discusses the approaches that analyze the way in which new transport infrastructure may lead to the restructuring and rebalancing of local and regional economies through structural change and the relocation of activities.
This brief outlines whyaddressing inefficiencies must be a priority across the entire system of interconnected roads, railroads, ports, and airports, in any given area.
The World Bank undertook a comprehensive assessment of South Asia’s container ports to support South Asian governments and stakeholders in the sector. It sought to understand the links between performance and its drivers and costs and to identify whether and how performance might be improved. The study proposes an approach for improvement based on regional and global experience.
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 objective of this study is to assess the impact of the East-West Highway improvement program on Georgia’s ability to access international markets.
The objective of the report and the accompanying index is not simply to rank countries, but to use score movements as a benchmark from which to investigate trends, identify successful PPP performers, and focus on the approaches that can facilitate a better understanding of common challenges and best-practice standards.
This report examines the performance of the 14 largest container ports in the region based on two sets of criteria: operational performance and economic performance. To measure operational performance, the report benchmarks total time at port, waiting time at port, and idle time as a share of total time at berth. To measure economic performance, it benchmarks productivity and efficiency using two useful techniques: Malmquist total factor productivity decomposition and data envelopment analysis. The report identifies key drivers of port performance and examines how differences in performance across ports are related to those drivers.
