The TA will strengthen the capacity to evaluate the poverty impacts of transport interventions in order to heighten their effectiveness in decreasing poverty and enhance the accountability of the project results. The TA will provide an objective basis for assessing the poverty impacts of a transport project, and (ii) undertake impact evaluation, which measures the outcomes and impacts of an activity and distinguishes them from the influence of other external factors. The outcomes of the TA are measured poverty impacts of transport projects and a practitioners' handbook for evaluating poverty impacts. The TA output will (i) help clarify whether the costs of an activity are justified, (ii) present lessons for improving the design and management of future interventions, and (iii) provide a basis to compare the effectiveness of alternative interventions.
