IGES Pre-Event at Better Air Quality (BAQ) 2010:
Accounting for Co-benefits in Asia's Transportation Sector:
Methods and Applications
The workshop has two objectives. The first is to examine methodological issues involved in using guidelines to measure co-benefits from transport projects (developing baselines, determining appropriate endpoints, overcoming data shortages). The second is to understand how guidelines were applied to actual projects in Thailand and the Philippines.

Discussions brought together transportation experts and transport policymakers to verify the applicability of the guidelines and how they can be operationalised to assist transport policy or project evaluation.

Please send your comments and suggestions to the Transport Co-benefits Guidelines(PDF, 1.2MB)and Transport Co-benefits Calculator(Excel File, 1.8MB, Zipped) before 31 December 2010 to Jane Romero (romero@iges.or.jp) and Eric Zusman (zusman@iges.or.jp) to be incorporated in the final draft.
