Development Impact Assessment in the Transport Sector (Webinar)

24 September 2013

In this webinar—which was part a webinar series on planning and financing sustainable, low-carbon urban transportation—our presenter, Caley Johnson of the U.S. National Renewable Energy Laboratory, addressed:

  • What is meant by “development impacts”
  • How identifying and evaluating the impacts of implementing sustainable transport systems on national development priorities, such as economic growth, health, gender equality, and others can contribute to achieving transport and development goals
  • Tools, approaches and methodologies available to assess development impacts of sustainable transport systems.
  • Choosing the right approach to development impact assessment
  • Case studies on how an understanding of development impacts of transport policies and programs has been applied in Asia and around the globe.
