2013 - World Bank - Improving Institutional Capability and Financial Viability to Sustain Transport


2013 - World Bank - Improving Institutional Capability and Financial Viability to Sustain Transport

The objective of this evaluation is to assess the effectiveness of World Bank Group support to countries in sustaining the provision of transport infrastructure and services and to distill lessons on the factors contributing to sustained transport. In the context of this evaluation, sustained provision of infrastructure and services is defined as the extent to which the policies, institutional and regulatory framework, sector management capacity, and financial arrangements are in place to ensure that transport infrastructure is operated and maintained, enabling a reliable flow of services over the long term. The term transport is used throughout this report to mean transport infrastructure and services, unless otherwise specified.

The evaluation covers World Bank, IFC, and MIGA transport operations approved over fiscal 2002-11. It includes investments in all six transport subsectors — intercity highways, rural roads, urban transport, railways, air transport, and ports and waterborne transport — in all client countries of the Bank Group. The evaluation recognizes the potentially complementary approaches of the three agencies in sustaining transport. The World Bank helps governments improve the enabling environment for sustained transport and finance physical investments. IFC and MIGA complement these efforts by supporting profitable private sector transport-related investments.
