    • Suggestions for an improved institutional mechanism for the collection, analysis and dissemination of transport data in developing countries Transforming Transportation 2011, 27 January 2011, Washington DC
    • Introduction
      • (Better) Transport Data required for:
        • policy making on transport infrastructure and transport services,
        • investment planning
        • assessment of socio-economic-environmental externalities
      • Users of transport data: national and local governments, development agencies, NGOs, academe
      • There are several existing transport data initiatives ( e.g. IEA, ITF, IRF, GIZ, UITP, CAI-Asia)
      • Challenge shortcomings in primary transport data in developing countries
    • How did we* get here?
      • Study by ADB and IDB has laid bare the gaps in availability and quality of transport data
      • Consultations among organizations working on transportation data on desirability (yes) and feasibility (yes, but) of working together
      • Kick-off meeting 26 January on possible Global Transport Initiative
      • Who is we*: ADB, CAI-Asia, GIZ, IDB, IEA, IRF, ITF, UITP
    • The Idea
      • Short term:
        • combine efforts of different organizations working on transport data in developing countries with the aim to develop a joint recurrent process of collecting, documenting and analysing national level transport data in developing countries
      • Medium term :
        • develop joint outlook studies.
    • The joint effort
      • Assess current state of data collection by all major data collecting organisations
      • Possible joint questionnaires with common methodology and approach across multiple countries.
      • Coordinated efforts in quality control of data submitted and validation against other secondary data sources.
      • Coordinated approach to regional and/or thematic analysis of transport data.
      • Coordinated approach to capacity building for the collection, documentation and analysis of transport data
      • Joint publication of transport data.
    • Scope of “Global Transport Intelligence”
      • Geographic scope: Focus on developing countries as part of a global process. No parallel processes
      • Thematic scope: transport infrastructure, transport services and impacts (road safety, air pollution, GHG emissions).
      • Modal scope: passenger and freight transport. Land transport (road and rail), water, and air transport. Both domestic transport and international transport.
    • Process
      • Gradual, Realistic, Local Ownership
      • Design “optimal” medium long term process:
        • Common data profile + glossary of definitions
        • Technical notes: e.g. Use of transport data
        • Capacity building of data collectors
      • Short term coordinate data gathering next round (2012)
        • Additional resources (ADB, IDB) for improvement of data collection and documentation in Asia and Latin America
    • Next steps
      • Expert Meeting: March or April 2011:
        • Define scope of joint efforts
        • Common understanding of data profile
        • Agree on scope of possible 2012-2013 GTI report
        • Scope supportive capacity building activities
      • Develop MoU among participating parties
      • Get buy in from additional organizations with transport data mandate
      • Get buy in from Developing countries through CSD 19, Foro TASAL (Latin America), and EST Forum (Asia)
