Review of sustainable transport connectivity in Asia and the Pacific: addressing the challenges for freight transport 2019

The Review of Sustainable Transport Connectivity in Asia and the Pacific: Addressing the Challenges for Freight Transport is the biennial publication of Transport Division. The edition of 2019 is produced at the three-year mark of the five-year Regional Action Programme for Sustainable Transport Connectivity in Asia and the Pacific (2017-2021). It is focused on assessing the state of transport connectivity in the region and posits that, ultimately, sustainable freight transport cannot be attained in the absence of sustainable transport connectivity. While the Asia and Pacific region has made measurable progress in addressing transport connectivity gaps, the high overall regional performance is driven by a few top performers, thus, hiding significant subregional variations.
