Institute for Transportation & Development Policy
Founded in 1985, the Institute for Transportation & Development Policy (ITDP) has become a leading organization in the promotion of environmentally sustainable and equitable transportation policies and projects worldwide.
ITDP was created by sustainable transport advocates in the United States to counteract the export to developing countries of costly and environmentally damaging models of dependence on the private automobile.
In its first ten years, ITDP successfully advocated for the redirection of lending activity by the World Bank and other multilateral institutions away from an exclusive focus on road projects and toward more multimodal transport solutions.
In more recent years, we have focused on working with municipalities and nongovernmental organizations in developing countries to implement projects that show how air pollution, carbon emissions, traffic congestion. and accidents can be reduced, or how the basic mobility of the poor can be improved.
