INVESTMENT STRATEGIES FOR DEVELOPING AREAS: MODELS OF TRANSPORT

The basic objective of the present study is to support Department of Transportation activities in advising developing countries on transport infrastructure improvements. Models of air, river and highway transportation are developed for use in the comparison of alternative investment strategies in transportation for developing areas. The work performed under this contract was executed simultaneously with a parallel contract (DOT-OS-00080). The results, however, are presented here. For a full exposition, both reports would be considered jointly. (Author Modified Abstract)
