The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) is reviewing its strategic approach to the Transport Sector and invites interested stakeholders in sharing comments and suggestions on the Draft Transport Sector Strategy 2019-2024.

The Draft Transport Sector Strategy 2019-2024 aims at promoting sustainable transport systems, which embody market principles, balance economic, environmental and social needs and are responsive to the needs of people, industry, and trade, according to the EBRD’s announcement of a public consultation to be held on July 26 in Belgrade, Serbia.

Public consultations on the Draft Transport Sector Strategy will also be held on July 25 in Instanbul, Turkey and July 29 in Cairo, Egypt.

The EBRD Transport Sector Strategy covers the Bank’s activities across the transport sector, including infrastructure and services (but excluding urban transport covered under the EBRD Municipal and Environmental Infrastructures Strategy). The Strategy is applicable to all of the Bank’s countries of operations and interfaces with other strategies, approaches and policies of the Bank (e.g. Environmental and Social Policy, Economic Inclusion Strategy, Green Economy Transition).

The key strategic directions suggested by the EBRD draft Transport Sector Strategy are:

  • Connected Networks to improve access in line with the needs of businesses and individuals to support economic growth, trade, and prosperity.
  • Private Sector Participation to encourage commercial principles that will drive sector and reform of state-owned enterprises.
  • Environmentally and Socially Responsive Transport which seeks to reduce inequality and regional imbalances.
  • Low carbon and Innovative Solutions, which will drive change and reduce carbon emissions.

In accordance with the EBRD’s Public Information Policy, the Bank invites civil society organizations, its clients, partners, and all interested stakeholders to contribute to the development of its Transport Sector Strategy. The Strategy draft has been released in English on the EBRD’s website and will be open for public consultation via written comments from stakeholders for 45 calendar days, or until September 6, 2019.
