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.
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 report is the product of a roundtable organised by ITF at the OECD and the UK National Infrastructure Commission.
