Transport is an essential element in the development of Asia and the Pacific, and has played a critical role in the region’s rapid economic growth. Transport networks facilitate the movement of people and goods, ensuring that labour, raw materials, products and ideas can move around easily and contribute to the social, economic and environmental betterment of the region. The challenge of the coming decades will be, however, to ensure that transport policies and investments contribute to more sustainable and inclusive development paths. Mitigating the negative externalities of transport is a necessary step in ensuring the sustainability and inclusiveness of transport networks.
