Under the SuM4All initiative, leading public and private organizations are joining efforts to transform transport for the better.
Better transport has the potential to improve the lives and livelihoods of billions of people by facilitating access to jobs, markets, and essential services such as healthcare or education. The World Bank provides financial and technical assistance to help countries implement sustainable mobility solutions that create real, lasting development benefits.
A new $375-million commitment will help India develop its first modern waterway on a 1,360-km stretch of the Ganga River. By providing a reliable and inexpensive way of carrying bulky cargo, the project will give a major boost to trade and logistics across the northern half of the country.
