Development and Challenges of International Transport Projects in Asia

Growing trade within Asia as well as with other regions demands efficient international transport in the region. The access to sea ports is even more important for 12 Asian landlocked countries. United Nations ESCAP,
Asian governments and development partners are collaborating together to develop international highway, railway and intermodal transport networks.

Different level of development in Asia provides challenges as well as opportunities for international transport. The challenges are harmonizing standards, improving and upgrading transport infrastructure, mobilization of funds, facilitation of cross border transport, improving road safety and ensuring sustainable maintenance of transport infrastructure.
Regional Intergovernmental Agreements on Asian Highway and Trans-Asian Railway are strengthening regional cooperation among member countries for transport development. Currently there is growing concern on impacts of climate change on transport and global efforts are needed to plan and develop sustainable transport infrastructure and mitigate carbon emission from transport.
