World Bank Tranportation PPP Toolkits

The World Bank developed and collected a range of transportation toolkits on the establishment of public-private partnerships (PPPs) in general transport, urban passenger transport, roads, railways and ports. They can be accessed here.

Considering low-carbon transport, the toolkits on light rail, bus rapid transit and railways are especially relevant.
