Evaluation to make transport "safe, clean and affordable"
In World Bank (WB) and elsewhere thinking about transport policies and projects undergoes major changes. Perhaps due to transport demand being derived demand, and an input into production of goods and other service, decisions on transport policies and projects were largely seen as technical matters, removed from policy thinking about growth, poverty reduction and the protection of the environment. Against the backdrop of a better understanding of how the transport sector influences economic development (WB, 2009) and of the increasing damages of transport to the environment (WB, 2012), transport has moved to a more important role in macroeconomic policy (WB, 2012b) and adopted a broader sector agenda (WB, 2008).
