Regional: Implementation of Sustainable Transport For All

Sovereign (Public) Project | 50370-001 Status: Active

This knowledge and support technical assistance (TA) will enhance the Asian Development Bank's (ADB) sustainable transport operations in developing member countries (DMCs) through support for project preparation, implementation, and capacity development to operations departments (ODs) and ADB's DMCs. This TA is needed to successfully implement the Midterm Review of the Sustainable Transport Initiative Operational Plan (STI-OP) and was included in the Transport Sector Group's (TSG's) 2017 Work Plan. The TA is aligned with ADB's Midterm Review of Strategy 2020, and its initial proposal for Strategy 2030, the High-Level Technology (HLT) initiative, the global sustainable transport agenda, and the Paris Agreement on climate change.

Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy

Transport, alongside its beneficial contributions, can have negative social, environmental and economic effects that need to be avoided or mitigated. DMCs need assistance to develop sustainable transport systems. STI-OP defined sustainable transport as transport that is accessible, affordable, environment-friendly and safe. However, many DMCs have limited experience developing sustainable transport solutions and need assistance from ADB to scale up their investments and develop more suitable institutional arrangements to support their ambitions.

In this context, ADB approved in 2010 the STI-OP to establish a bank-wide approach to adapt its transport operations to better serve the changing needs of DMCs. The plan emphasizes the need to mainstream sustainability in ADB's road operations (road asset management, road safety), and build up operations in (i) urban transport, (ii) addressing climate change in transport, (iii) cross-border transport and logistics, and (iv) social sustainability. It sets aspirational targets for transport lending that were incorporated within ADB's corporate results framework. In 2016, the Midterm Review of the STI-OP examined progress of its implementation concluding that ADB has significantly adjusted the overall subsector composition of its transport portfolio: lending for roads declined from 79% in 20002009 to 67% in 20102016, for urban transport increased from 2% to 15% and the transport lending became more diverse (policy reform, water transport, multimodal logistics, etc.). Taking into account the present subsector lending trends and the limited scope for ODs to make significant adjustments to the pipeline, the targets for ADB's assistance for sustainable transport as set out in the Midterm Review of Strategy 2020 were revised. Setting targets that are ambitious and realistic, the Midterm Review established the 2020 lending targets to 52% for roads, 20% for urban transport, and 18% for railways.

In 2011, ADB approved a $9.3 million TA (Cluster TA) to support the implementation of the STI-OP. It focused mainly on conducting studies on greenhouse gas assessment methodologies, low carbon transport, non-motorized transport, data on sustainable transport, and intelligent transport systems (ITS). The Cluster TA helped to develop ADB's strategy to implement the STI-OP by conducting initial sector positioning studies for urban transport and supporting knowledge work, but provided limited resources for strategic operational support to ODs. The Cluster TA was completed in December 2016 with the recommendation that new regional TAs should continue the support to implement the Midterm Review of the STI-OP and should have clearer focus and scope on supporting ODs in the scaling up sustainable transport and should be prepared and implemented in consultation with ODs and other sector and thematic groups.

To enhance strategic operational support and provide interim support to ODs, in 2015, ADB approved a $5 million Regional Research and Development Technical Assistance for Unlocking Innovation for Development (Innovation TA). This TA committed $1.5 million to help scale-up urban transport and road safety operations in DMCs. The original completion date of the TA is December 2019 but due to high demand from ODs for support, TSG expects the early completion of activities by 2018. The resources from this proposed TA will enable TSG to seamlessly continue supporting urban transport and road safety in the ODs.
