The Institute for Transportation and Development Policy (ITDP) works to promote sustainable and equitable transportation around the world. The ITDP enlisted the help of a Capstone team to assist in its effort to creatively advocate for sustainable transportation development in the international arena. Building from the Rio+20 United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development, during which eight multilateral development banks voluntarily committed to directing $175 billion in funding and loans to more sustainable transportation projects around the world, the Capstone team developed resources to evaluate the progress and highlight the successes of this endeavor. As part of this effort, the team traveled to the Philippines to work with the Asian Development Bank in order to maximize the efficacy of their sustainability rating tool, ensuring its effective use in future projects.
