Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy
Impact To meet the increased demand for urban travel in selected DMCs in a sustainable way, transport analysis and policy solutions will be developed to address energy security and decrease the rate of climate change contribution from the subsector through energy efficient and clean transport infrastructure and services. Inclusive transport systems will be prioritized to ensure pro poor accessbility for all. Replicable pilot interventions would be developed to enhance future ADB urban transport sector interventions.
Project Outcome
Description of Outcome ADB transport sector lending will include $1.5 billion, or around half of future sector lending, in energy efficient and clean energy transport infrastructure and services by 2015. This amount will increase over time to ensure ADB long term commitment. Assistance will be given to DMCs to develop transport programs and projects that ensure inclusive, energy efficient and clean energy transport systems and will be supported by ADB pipeline investments in sustainable transport in targeted DMCs.
Progress Toward Outcome
Implementation Progress
Description of Project Outputs 1. Energy efficient clean energy transport program developed and implemented 2. Develop pilot energy efficient and inclusive urban transport projects 3. Post Kyoto agreements take account of transport sector measures and methodologies
