                                   Financing the Future of Transport
                                   in Asia and the Pacific
                                   9 a.m.–10:30 a.m.

                                   By Asian Development Bank (ADB) estimates, the Asian transport sector will require more than $8.4 trillion of
                                   investment by 2030 in order to continue the region’s growth trajectory while responding to the challenges of
                                   climate change. In this opening plenary, a high-level panel with representatives from ADB, the transport ministries
                                   of developing Asian countries, and major donor organizations will delve into the opportunities that exist to close
                                   this funding gap and direct the financing towards more sustainable, resilient transport infrastructure.

                                   This opening plenary will start off the Transport Forum’s discussions about the evolving needs of developing Asia
                                   in terms of transport infrastructure and how these needs have shifted as circumstances have changed with regard
                                   to (i) financing and new types of financial mechanisms, (ii) the entry of advanced transport technology into the
                                   region, and (iii) transport as a vector and driver of overall economic and social development.

As with many other development sectors, from energy to health care, advances in technology has transformed
the face of transport. New transport technology such as smartphone navigation has been seamlessly integrated
into daily life, while other concepts such as ride sharing have disrupted traditional transport concepts with both
positive and negative effects. Other technologies are on the cusp, not yet achieving widespread success, but have
the potential to utterly transform how we move, such as fully autonomous vehicles.

This plenary session will have several thought leaders working in innovative transport technology fields sharing their
professional experiences in order to predict a possible future for transport in Asia and the Pacific, and underscore
the point that the future is always closer than we believe it to be.

                                   Transport Technology

                                   2 p.m.–3:30 p.m.

                                   In view of the global imperative to support low carbon transport and make transport sustainable, the role of electric
                                   vehicles (EV) is becoming much more important. Growing greenhouse gas emissions throughout developing Asia
                                   and the Pacific lends an imperative for countries to be strongly encouraged to accelerate a transition to electric
                                   driving as a tool for addressing climate change concerns and eliminating emissions.

                                   However, several influencing factors account for the current limited use of EV in Asia and the Pacific including the
                                   purchasing cost of technology, the need to establish an electric charging infrastructure, the lack of proper EV policy,
                                   and other obstacles. It is necessary to clearly discern what barriers stand in the way of EV use and what solutions
                                   for overcoming those obstacles are available for developing Asia and the Pacific.

                                   Speakers in this session will review the deployment of e-mobility policy and technology across the globe, and
                                   discuss the actions that can be taken in the e-mobility field to help developing Asian countries increase their usage
                                   of EVs, and bring down the existing obstacles and barriers that are preventing their widespread use.

The backbone of interconnected countries is transport and the trade and travel this facilitates. In ADB’s example,
a majority of its investments to increase regional connectivity, and improve cross border trade and cooperation
is directed to transport projects. There is much to learn from the examples of regional integration, such as the
European Union’s border and transit policies, and cooperation platforms, including the Association of Southeast
Asian Nations (ASEAN), and the Central Asia Regional Economic Cooperation Program (CAREC).

This session’s speakers will be presenting key issues and solutions for regional transport connectivity within Asia
and the Pacific, and also on examples from Europe.

                                   The purpose of the meeting is for ADB and its partners to discuss the changing face of the region’s transport
                                   sector and how this affects our development approach. Among the issues at the forefront include the shift of many
                                   developing Asian countries to middle income status, which opens the door to new areas of support—combining
                                   knowledge, technology, and a range of financing modalities to meet a different set of needs. What will the rapid
                                   progression of transport technologies, the rise of e-mobility, and the implementation of intelligent transport
                                   systems in the region mean for the transport sector in the future? How should climate change considerations shape
                                   transport projects and initiatives in the region?

                                  Meeting developing Asia’s multi-billion dollar transport infrastructure financing needs will require approaches that
                                  go beyond typical project financing and tap new funding resources. The intersection of the public and private
                                  sectors is an area that holds a great deal of promise, and multilateral and bilateral agencies are improving their
                                  ability to develop and secure deals and agreements that are mutually beneficial. Financing agencies are also looking
                                  at expanding their own financial instruments in order to be more responsive.

                                  In this session, representatives from financing agencies and the financial sector will share their firsthand experiences
                                  on specific financing topics, such as meeting transport needs, even as those needs shift and change due to country
                                  specific conditions, as well as discussing the new opportunities arising in finance as many developing Asian
                                  countries progress to middle income status.

                                 Climate Mitigation and Transport
                                 9 a.m.–10:30 a.m.

                                 ADB’s climate mitigation activities are guided in part by the “Guidance Note on Counting Climate Finance at
                                 ADB” which is further based on the joint MDB approach to counting climate finance that was issued in October of
                                 2016. These guidance notes serve as the key reference point for calculating ADB’s annual climate finance amount
                                 for contribution to the annual joint MDB climate finance reports and most importantly for tracking progress in
                                 achieving ADB’s target of climate financing of $6 billion per year by 2020.

                                 Quantifying climate finance for mitigation activities in the transport sector is particularly complex and challenging
                                 due to the need for large amounts of data; practical difficulties in getting accurate data and the need for complex
                                 calculations. Hence a simplified approach of counting the entire investment amount for “sustainable transport”
                                 projects (urban transport, railways) as the climate finance amount is being followed.

                                 The purpose of this session will be to (i) learn about best practice approaches for quantifying climate mitigation
                                 and finance for transport in selected countries, cities, and organizations; (ii) learn about the challenges in tracking
                                 climate mitigation and finance, and the possible solutions to these challenges; and (iii) understand if there is a need
                                 for the approach being followed by ADB, and its partner multilaterals, to be revised or further refined in the pursuit
                                 of accuracy.

This session plans to hold a lively discussion, with audience participation on the topic of metro rail transport
especially as an option for Asian cities which are increasingly exploring mass transit options in order overcome the
challenges of traffic gridlock.

Metro rail is hailed as a solution to move people from private to public transport, but the sustainability of metros
is often challenged. The discussions during this session will (i) explore rail-based public transportation from a
variety of facets; (ii) dive into questions of sustainability along financial lines—as well as economic, social, and
environmental; and (iii) attempt to form a holistic viewpoint when it comes to rail transport’s future as an integral
component of Asian cities.

                                 Best international practice on Railway Asset Management is getting more attention, since the permanent way
                                 infrastructure of railway systems are major capital investments foreseen for long service lives, a crucial element for
                                 the availability and capacity of the entire railway system and critical for efficient, reliable and safe railway operations.
                                 Therefore, special asset management considerations and maintenance strategies are essential.

                                 This training session shall look at some essential aspects on asset management of the permanent way infrastructure
                                 of railways and shall provide a brief overview on the related knowledge building program of ADB’s Transport Sector
                                 Group, together with the Graz University of Technology. This knowledge and capacity building program covers a
                                 series of regional seminars on Railway Infrastructure Asset Management for DMC officials and ADB staff over the
                                 years 2018-20, to understand railway track behavior and to evaluate different asset management strategies, based
                                 on total cost of ownership (TCO) considerations.

Planning urban transport systems to address the needs of a growing population is a complex process with many
facets. Holistic urban transport solutions are often ignored in favor of fragmented, construction-focused efforts.
Well thought-out urban mobility solutions must be more than just engineering. For solutions to be truly effective,
decision-makers need to bring a multidimensional and inclusive approach to the urban transport planning process.

Leaders in Urban Transport Planning is a capacity-building program aimed at leaders and change agents to help
them develop a comprehensive approach to problems of urban transport in their cities. The program is based
on real-world case study discussions, site visits, and an interactive learning-by-doing approach. Participants are
expected to play an active role during training and are put in the situation of a decision-maker to try and find
solutions to the encountered problems. The objective is to help cities promote clean, efficient, safe, affordable, and
inclusive transport solutions for shared prosperity.

Participants will gain knowledge on important topics in urban transport such as: making decisions in a difficult
political environment, strategic planning, diagnosing key problems that cities face; integrated approach to land
use and transport planning; issues in transport oriented development, multimodal integration; demand analysis,
alternative analysis, intelligent transport systems and fare collection approaches, corridor management; governance
and financing.

Participants will be exposed to new knowledge—raised awareness, improved motivation, increased understanding
of the complexity of issues surrounding urban transport; establish structure and directions for ADB’s Transport
Sector Group; and develop a specific knowledge sharing action agenda.

                                 Road Safety—is ADB doing enough?
                                 2 p.m.–5:30 p.m.

                                 In 2010 the United Nations (UN) General Assembly proclaimed the Decade of Action for Road Safety 2011–2020
                                 – the goal being to stabilize and reduce the forecast level of road traffic deaths around the world. It was estimated
                                 that 5 million lives could be saved on the world’s roads during the decade.

                                 To guide its work on mainstreaming road safety, in January 2012 ADB developed the Road Safety Action Plan. It
                                 provides the basis for ADB to play a more proactive role to support developing countries in Asia and the Pacific in
                                 their efforts to achieve sustainable, effective, and cost-effective improvements in road safety.

                                 The UN has also set a Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) to reduce by half the number of road deaths and

The objective of this workshop is to provide practical guidance on how developing and emerging countries can
tackle urban mobility challenges towards sustainable and low carbon mobility through National Urban Mobility
Programmes (NUMPs). Participants shall explore and discuss basic elements and principles of NUMPs.

The workshop provides direction to developing economies and cities on how to break out of the low quality, high-
risk, low profit, low investment spiral in which so many urban transport systems in the world are nowadays caught.
Target group are senior members of public authorities (local and national) working on urban transport issues.

By the end of the workshop, participants will:

• be familiar with the basic principles and elements of NUMPs as well as the MobiliseYourCity initiative;
• have learnt different case studies and best practices in national urban transport policies, institutional frameworks
  and financing strategies;
• be aware of options how to incentivise better urban mobility planning and stimulate investments via a NUMP.

• What are the approaches around the world with regard to national policies, programs and legislative frameworks
  that enable implementation of sustainable urban mobility actions?
• How to enhance institutional coordination between various national and local government institutions, private
  sector stakeholders and civil society, and strengthen human capacity?
• What can be done in the future in order to improve financing of urban mobility systems to deliver positive
  results in climate change mitigation and quality of life?

Special Session: Road Asset Management
9 a.m.–12:30 a.m.

                                                                                                                      14 SEPTEMBER // FRIDAY
ADB is organizing a special, invitation only session to discuss the new thinking and approaches for addressing the
challenges of road asset management in developing Asia.

                                                                                                           #ADBTF18     25

                               Nature-Based Approaches to
                               Designing Transport Infrastructure
                               2 p.m.–5:30 p.m.

                               Linear transport infrastructure is known to be one of the major types of development infrastructure fragmenting
                               natural forests and resulting in depletion of natural resources. This is especially so in Asia where the pace of socio-
                               economic development is rapidly increasing. However, this does not have to be the case. There is a host of planning
                               tools, methods and design options that can help minimize negative ecological impacts and enable economic
                               development to take place hand in hand with nature conservation.

                               ADB is increasingly supporting bigger and more complex projects often involving roads and railways crossing
                               through or near important ecological habitat areas. This demands the application of best practices of nature-based
                               approaches to designing the road or railway.

                               The purpose of the training is to train relevant ADB Executing Agency officials and ADB staff on: (i) typical ecological
                               impacts of linear transport infrastructure; (ii) design and planning to avoid, minimize and mitigate impacts; (iii)
                               mitigation options to avoid and minimize impacts; and (iv) share examples through case studies.
