OECD International Transport Forum: Wider Economic Impacts

EDR Group staff (Gen Weisbrod and Stephen Fitzroy) worked for the OECD/ITF (International Transportation Forum) in a series of international workshops (Paris, Santiago, Boston and Mexico City) that focused on identifying multi-modal transport evaluation issues confronting governments around the world. They covered: (a) how wider benefit, impact and equity concerns can be incorporated into decision-making, as new transport options emerge, and (b) how ex-post observation can be implemented to track ongoing progress and uncover emerging issues. For the Paris workshop on “Quantifying the Socio-Economic Benefits of Transport, Glen Weisbrod of EDR Group authored the core discussion report called “Estimating Wider Economic Impacts in Transportation Project Prioritization.” It examined how benefit-cost analysis, economic impact analysis and multi-criteria analysis approaches have evolved and been applied to address the governmental decision processes in the U.S. and other countries.
