The development of an effective and implementable national transportation plan requires an understanding and assessment of institutional and financial factors. The hopes for developing a plan that is responsive to the real needs and expectations of a country, and is therefore implementable, rest heavily upon a recognition of the political, institutional, and financial constraints and forces operating in the transportation sector. Successful operation of the transportation system is dependent upon effective management and coordination. Equitable and efficient financing leads to higher productivity and a fair distribution of costs and benefits. For these reasons, the institutional and financial analyses constitute a major contribution to the development and ongoing review of the National Transportation Plan.
