Improving the Practice of Cost Benefit Analysis in Transport23 August 2014 18:56:00ITFAvoid
Improve analysis (CBA) is widely recognized to be helpful, even indispensible, for making good decisions on what transport projects to fund. It essentially aims to figure out which projects offer the best value for money, one of the core criteria for making decisions. However, the practical relevance of cost-benefit analysis does not always live up to its appeal in principle.

GIZ Sourcebook Module 4c: Two and Three Wheelers22 August 2014 04:48:55GIZShift
Improve module focuses on Asian developing cities, as the two- and three-wheeler vehicle fleets-and associated challenges- are far higher in Asia than in other parts of the developing world. The consideration of two- and three-wheelers is divided into two broad categories: transport system issues in cities with high shares of passenger trips undertaken by motorcycles and air quality issues.
GIZ Sourcebook Module 4b: Inspection and Maintenance and Roadworthiness22 August 2014 04:46:21GIZImprove and emission improvements are the main challeneges for an increasing vehicle fleet in developing countries. While Government can set standards for safe, clean and fuel efficient cars, only an efficient Inspection & Maintenance (I/M) scheme can maintain safety levels (e.g. brakes, lights, chassis) and low emissions (e.g. exhaust gas test, OBD check). This module discusses recommendations around the main aspects of introducing an efficient inspection & maintenance program.
Gender and Transport22 August 2014 04:42:42ITFAvoid
Improve present, many projects in developing countries aim to encourage access for women to services and means of transport, and to improve the participation of women in transport-related jobs.

Equitable Access: Remote and Rural Communities ‘Transport Needs’22 August 2014 04:20:37ITFAvoid
Improve in rural and remote regions receives considerable attention in research, but this is often focussed on specific means of resolving problems in those regions – for example, the role of demand-responsive bus services, or scope for attracting users to rail services. The aim of this paper is to take a broader view, firstly in defining what constitute “rural and remote regions”, and secondly in considering a wide range of public transport options available. Experience in Britain will be taken as a starting point, since extensive research has been conducted here, and rural issues are also a focus of much public debate at present. Findings from other European countries will also be examined.
Effective Regulatory Institutions: The Regulator's Role in the Policy Process, Including Issues of Regulatory Independence22 August 2014 04:15:38ITFAvoid
Improve paper discusses three connected aspects of regulation: (1) what makes a regulatory authority effective; (2) what is the legitimate role of a regulatory authority in the making and implementation of policy, and how that role may be regarded by others, and (3) the issue of independence of regulation from undue political intervention.
Cart or Horse: Transport and Economic Growth22 August 2014 04:06:26ITFShift
Improve paper argues that transport is more cart than horse, in that transport improvements are not the most important driver of economic growth for most countries. Nevertheless there are circumstances in which transport is particularly important. Big transport breakthroughs – such as replacing walking with railways, or creating a highways network for the first time – do have big effects, but these are unlikely to be seen again in developed economies. Instead transport in developed economies is best seen as having a supporting role. If it is neglected, it can constrain growth, as congestion and unreliable transport systems can exact a heavy price. But as long as the transport system is “good enough”, the returns to greater transport investment will be relatively limited.
Asset Management for Sustainable Road Funding22 August 2014 04:02:25ITFImprove paper lays out a framework for managing complex asset systems, such as road networks, with a view to optimising life-cycle value of the asset base.

Alternative Ways of Financing Infrastructure Investment: Potential for ‘Novel’ Financing Models22 August 2014 03:55:08ITFAvoid
Improve report examines the issue of financing (transportation) infrastructure investment projects. It looks closely at what market failures result in the private sector not being able to cover the investment requirement itself. It then assesses the government failures associated with intervention, and identifies what public–private partnerships (PPPs) offer in overcoming these failures. The limitations of PPPs are then addressed, and the regulated asset base (RAB) model is introduced as a potential alternative, with an assessment of its advantages and disadvantages.
