  • Sharing Road Safety: Developing an International Framework for Crash Modification Functionsby International Transport Forum

    OECD Publishing 2013; US$ 56.00

    Each year about 1.3 million people are killed and another 50 million people are injured on roads worldwide. These road crashes cost countries between 1 and 3 percent of their GDP. Many of these crashes can be prevented by effective countermeasures. This report helps identify the most effective safety countermeasures. Policy makers need to justify expenditure... more...

  • Trends in the Transport Sectorby OECD Publishing; International Transport Forum

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2008; US$ 33.00

    This report provides the reader with the first available internationally comparable figures on key transport trends. It analyses the transport situation in the western and eastern European countries, as well as the Baltic States and the CIS. For the first time, data are provided on transport among ECMT associated countries, Australia, Canada, Japan,... more...

  • The Wider Economic Benefits of Transportby OECD Publishing; International Transport Forum

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2008; US$ 105.00

    The standard cost-benefit analysis of transport infrastructure investment projects weighs a project’s costs against users’ benefits. This approach has been challenged on the grounds that it ignores wider economic impacts of such projects. At this International Transport Forum Round Table, leading academics and practitioners addressed... more...

  • Biofuelsby OECD Publishing; International Transport Forum

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2008; US$ 105.00

    Biofuels received USD 15 billion in subsidies in OECD Member countries in 2007, but did they deliver benefits in terms of climate change or oil security? Present policies make no link between support for biofuels and their environmental performance, and biofuels do not all perform equally well. In fact, much of the current ethanol and biodiesel production... more...

  • Oil Dependenceby OECD Publishing; International Transport Forum

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2008; US$ 105.00

    Oil consumption is increasingly concentrated in transport and relatively limited fluctuations in transport demand can have increasingly significant effects on oil prices. This Round Table assesses the policy instruments available to address oil security and climate change and examines their interaction with measures to manage congestion and mitigate... more...

  • Long-Life Surfaces for Busy Roadsby OECD Publishing; International Transport Forum

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2008; US$ 84.00

    Long-life surfaces could substantially cut the costs of road works, including the delays they cause, especially on congested routes with heavy traffic. These surfaces use new materials that cost more than conventional asphalt and require special handling. This report presents the results of collaborative research to evaluate the technical and economic... more...

  • Benefiting from Globalisationby OECD Publishing; International Transport Forum

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2008; US$ 182.00

    The opportunities for individuals and businesses to benefit from globalisation are increased by efficient, cost-effective transport networks. A competitive, responsive, well-organised transport sector facilitates trade, but creating the conditions for this poses policy challenges that must be tackled if transport is to contribute fully to globalisation.... more...

  • Towards Zeroby OECD Publishing; International Transport Forum

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2008; US$ 98.00

    Each year around 1.2 million people are killed and 50 million are injured on roads around the world. But crashes are largely preventable and much can be done to reduce the burden of pain they cause and their economic impact. This report takes stock of recent developments and initiatives to meet increasingly ambitious road safety targets, and constitutes... more...

  • ITF Round Tables Privatisation and Regulation of Urban Transit Systemsby OECD Publishing; International Transport Forum

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2008; US$ 70.00

    Urban public transport services generally run at a large deficit. This has led public authorities to seek efficiencies, notably through private sector involvement. Support for the sector traditionally seeks to provide basic mobility services to all segments of society, including low-income users. Intervention is also required to manage the natural... more...

  • The Cost and Effectiveness of Policies to Reduce Vehicle Emissionsby OECD Publishing; International Transport Forum

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2008; US$ 92.00

    Transport sector policies already contribute to moderating greenhouse gas emissions from road vehicles. They are increasingly designed to contribute to overall societal targets to mitigate climate change. While abatement costs in transport are relatively high, there are plausible arguments in favour of further abatement in this sector. The... more...
