Transport policies, services and infrastructure are crucial to the development of the global South. This course will consider the economic, financial, institutional and demographic characteristics of developing countries and their significance for transport sector policies. It will also focus on development policy in developing countries and its role in determining transport policy. The course will also cover a range of current and relevant topics including

  • road infrastructure investment

  • rural road policy and investment

  • road maintenance planning, infrastructure finance including the contribution of the private sector; the roles of mass-transit and

  • the informal sector and non-motorised modes.

This 5-day course benefits from the considerable expertise of research-active staff and draws upon ITS’ experience of advising national governments and other prominent organisations. The course also provides the option, with additional attendance, of accruing credits towards a Masters degree in Transport Planning. It can also be delivered as bespoke or in-company training on a date and at a location chosen by the client organisation.

The course will be held in ITS training facilities at the University of Leeds, Leeds LS2 9JT. The fee includes learning materials, lunch and refreshments during the course, but not overnight accommodation (details of local hotels are available on request).
