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 IRF World Road Statistics (WRS) continue to be the only comprehensive, universal source of statistical data on road networks, traffic and inland transport.
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 Logistics Performance Index has provided valuable information for policy makers, traders, and other stakeholders, including researchers and academics, on the role of logistics for growth and the policies needed to support logistics in areas such as infrastructure planning, service provision, and crossborder trade and transport facilitation.
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.
Over the last decade, much has been written about globalisation and how we’re more connected than ever before. In the infrastructure world, we think of connectivity as the “linkages of communities, economies and nations through transport, communications, energy, and water networks across a number of countries” .
This report looks into developing policies for Angola in the energy, water, transport and communcations sector in order to enhance the private participation in the rebuilding and development in the countries infrastructure.
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.
This issue focuses on Urbanization and Infrastructure Development
This report provides details about all the infrastructure deals that has happened across the globe in 2015 including project finance and advisory league tables.
