The objective of the TA is to promote green and pro poor economic development through the establishment of a sustainable transport system that will efficiently move people and goods. Being the second phase of the sustainable transport initiative, the TA will build on the findings of Phase I and produce a development framework for sustainable transport at the regional level. The TA will present (i) a singular vision, cohesive strategy, and clear cut directions for sustainable urban transport and the effective use of land (ii) a strategic development framework (policy, programming, and financing) (iii) a project development manual and (iv) a regional level action plan for clean and efficient energy use in transport.

|Description||The objective of the TA is to promote green and pro poor economic development through the establishment of a sustainable transport system that will efficiently move people and goods. Being the second phase of the sustainable transport initiative, the TA will build on the findings of Phase I and produce a development framework for sustainable transport at the regional level. The TA will present (i) a singular vision, cohesive strategy, and clear cut directions for sustainable urban transport and the effective use of land (ii) a strategic development framework (policy, programming, and financing) (iii) a project development manual and (iv) a regional level action plan for clean and efficient energy use in transport.|
|Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy||The region is experiencing considerable environmental stress due to demographic pressure and high economic expansion. The repid growth of Asian economies has resulted in equally rapid growth in motorization in many cities, vehicle fleets double every 5 7 years. Poor road safety, worsening congestion, and air pollution not only bring down the quality of life but also carry large economic and social costs. The current patterns of motorized transport also are contributing significantly to the rising levels of greenhouse gas emissions from the region. The ADB Long Term Strategy and Medium Term Strategy II, therefore, emphasize not just growth but environmentally sustainable growth. Without adequate protection, the region's encironment will continue to suffer many forms of degradation, including deteriorating air quality. The growing imbalance between energy demand and supply is threatening the sustainability of Asia's robust growth rate. Thus, a major challenge is to chart a green growth course: securing the benefits of growth specifically, poverty reduction while minimizing its adverse environmental impacts.|
|Impact||The impact of the TA is to promote sustainable development through sustainable urban transport systems in the region.|
|Description of Outcome||The outcome of the TA will be to improve the way cities address and provide for the increasing demand for travel, by utilizing long term visions and packaged programs of sustainable transport systems that can move people, goods, and services efficiently.|
