Greener Connectivity in Eastern Partnership Countries

Our modelling suggests that large greenhouse gas emission reductions and significant economic benefits can be achieved in the Eastern Partnership countries (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine) through transport policy changes. Funding from international donor agencies (e.g. World Bank, EIB, UNDP) for transport projects is increasingly tied to their ability to significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions in order to secure eligibility. On this World Bank-led project we have modelled a variety of policy scenarios and are working with the governments of these countries to help them identify locally achievable policies and build evidence-led funding bids for sustainable transport infrastructure. A key element of our approach is our development of a new and open-source interactive data visualisation tool, tailor-made to support: - clear communication of policy outcomes and modelling methodology - independent interrogation of model outputs at route and region level by expert and inexpert users - and, through attention to scalability, public information campaigns We report on our progress on the project, focussing on the technical challenges of developing the visualisation tool and the feedback from policymakers on it.
