The project objectives were to assist beneficiary cities in: (i) reducing the rate of greenhouse gas emissions by increasing the use of less energy-intensive and cleaner modes of transport; and ii) inducing policy changes in favor of sustainable transport policies. Ratings for GEF Sustainable Transport and Air Quality Program were as follows: outcome was moderately unsatisfactory, risk to development outcome was negligible to low, Bank performance was moderately satisfactory, and Borrow performance was moderately unsatisfactory. Lessons include: (i) Broad and ambitious long-term objectives can result in implementation and efficacy challenges when the scope and timeframe of the project are limited. (ii) When selecting project implementation arrangements, whether centralized at the national level or decentralized, the World Bank should assess local capacity issues with care and realism. (iii) The rationale for linking the implementation of GEF projects with that of larger urban transport operations needs to be assessed on an individual project basis. (iv) While overall funding under GEF operations is often limited, GEF projects can promote innovative sustainable transport policy initiatives.
