These needs are growing exponentially under the combined effect of globalization, population growth, rapid urbanization, economic development, and technological progress - making transport a cornerstone of the global development agenda. In addition to project finance, the Practice is advancing the global dialogue on the future of transportation through influential programs such as the Sustainable Mobility for All initiative, the Global Road Safety Facility and the Africa Transport Policy Program.
