fbpx ADB's Focus on Transport | Asian Development Bank


Developing Asia will need to invest $1.7 trillion per year until 2030, if the region is to maintain growth, tackle poverty, and respond effectively to climate change. ADB is working throughout the region to promote safe, accessible, and green transport infrastructure and services.

Transport has a key role to play in each of the seven operational priorities for ADB under its Strategy 2030. ADB aims to provide access and mobility for both people and goods, while promoting efficient and effective transport systems that reduce travel times and costs. The bank aims to minimize the negative social and environmental impacts of transport wherever possible. ADB understands that transport plays a key role in enabling continued economic and social development in the region.
