This note explores issues within the
urban logistics and port-cities thematic pillar. It is one
of three focus areas, or thematic pillars, for the
multi-donor trust fund for sustainable logistics (MDTF-SL).
The goal of this pillar is to finance activities that will
assist developing countries in two areas; addressing urban
congestion resulting from retail distribution of goods, and
improving the sustainable design and operation of
port-cities. Activities under this pillar will concentrate
on reducing congestion and pollution by focusing on the
efficient distribution of goods in urban environments.
Additional emphasis will be placed on the urban planning
tools and investments required for port-cites to address
sustainability issues endemic to densely populated economies
serving as either a local or regional transport hubs.
