World Bank Transport Global Practice

Transport is a critical element to reaching almost all social and economic development goals and helping end extreme poverty. Mobility solutions connect billions of people to jobs, education, and health services; make cities and countries competitive and inclusive; and promotes global trade and growth. The World Bank’s Transport Global Practice responds to the needs of developing countries for faster, cheaper, safer and more efficient transport solutions while addressing traffic fatalities, congestion, greenhouse gas emissions, and local air pollution. The World Bank Group is committed to tackling these challenges, with an active transport portfolio of almost $40 billion across more than 100 countries. In addition to financing, we are shaping the global dialogue on the future of transportation through flagship reports such as the Global Mobility Report, and programs such as the Sustainable Mobility for All initiative, the Global Road Safety Facility and the Africa Transport Policy Program.
