Mainstreaming Transport Co-benefits Approach: A Guide to Evaluating Transport Projects24 August 2014 00:20:57Multi-sector Impact EvaluationBest PracticesInstitute for Global Environmental StrategiesShift
Improve co-benefits guideline.pdfThe Institute for Global Environmental Strategies (IGES) has

been conducting research on co-benefits. This research has demonstrated that quantifying co-benefits is essential to mainstreaming climate and development concerns into project appraisals, policymaking processes, and international climate negotiations. IGES research has also shown that, while it is important to quantify co-benefits, policymakers in developing Asia frequently lack the time, resources, and training to conduct standard cost-benefit analyses. These difficulties are compounded in the transport sector due to a large number of actors, frequent limits on data, and a wide range of feedbacks. Hence a simple intuitive tool to support the quantification of co-benefits of transport projects and policies is much needed. IGES has been working closely with researchers at Nihon University in Tokyo, Japan and associated organizations in Thailand and the Philippines to develop such a tool. This document represents the result of these efforts. The guidelines or TCG, provide a set of user-friendly, step-by-step instructions for policymakers, transport planners, and development specialists interested in quantifying co-benefits of transport projects in Asia.

GIZ Sourcebook Module 5f: Adapting Urban Transport to Climate Change23 August 2014 23:53:15GIZAvoid
Improve a resilient urban transport system is necessary to avoid large and costly disruptions of urban life. As current weather impacts on transport will become more frequent and more extreme in the future, the number of days on which the transport system is confronted with extreme stressors will increase. If no adaptive measures are taken, more frequent disruptions and higher economic costs must be expected. This module is intended to raise awareness, describe the expected impacts of climate change on urban passenger transport, and provide an orientation on how to integrate climate proofing into urban transport planning and policy implementation. The module concludes with a discussion on synergies between adaptation and mitigation.

This module focuses on CDM and the GHG market; CDM transport projects; core elements of a transport methodology; and case studies in CDM.
GIZ Sourcebook Module 5c: Noise and its Abatement23 August 2014 22:08:32GIZAvoid
Improve pollution in large developing cities is an insidious issue. In such noisy cities, many people seem to have become accustomed to the higher noise levels that underpin their daily activities.

This module discusses the aspects of noise, sources of road noise, the nature and scale of impacts, and remedial measures to mitigate noise pollution.

Meeting Society’s Transport Needs Under Tight Budgets23 August 2014 19:15:28ITFShift
Improve the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis, both the private and public sectors face stringent constraints in funding for transport infrastructure investment and transport services. At the same time, economic recession highlights the social value of public support for disadvantaged users of transport services and more generally the importance of effective transport systems to efficient labour markets and access to jobs. This drives governments to focus anew on efficiency in the delivery of transport services and infrastructure investments and on efficient targeting of support for public transport. In developing economies these policy concerns are amplified by rapid urbanisation, which makes coordination of transport services across metropolitan areas imperative.
