In its function as an international lender using economic criteria, the Bank has been something of an operating pioneer in the cost-benefit analysis of road, rail, and port projects. Methods have evolved over time, and are still evolving. One of the major tasks is to assess where the project fits within the sector as a whole, not to mention the economy. In some countries, moreover, the project affects the entire transport system. By publishing in a compact form these two essays on sector and project planning in transportation the Bank hopes to help fill a gap in the sparse general literature of the subject.
