ABOUT THE TOD KNOWLEDGE PRODUCTS
The TOD Knowledge Products bring together knowledge resources from multiple sources and countries that help in breaking down the concept of TOD for application in cities from World Bank client countries. The World Bank, through its Community of Practice (CoP), and the Global Platform for Sustainable Cities (GPSC), identified the need for such a resource through their work with over 30 cities on TOD at all scales across all geographic regions. The Community of Practice focuses on supporting TOD assessment and implementation, expanding the available TOD knowledge base and leveraging partnerships with other global think-tanks and agencies
These new Knowledge Resources are the first comprehensive attempt by the World Bank Community of Practice (CoP) to provide an implementation-focused guide to plan and implement successful TODs. With increased investment in mass rapid transit systems, the time is opportune to prepare a compendium of resources that help TOD stakeholders address how integrated land use and transit can serve as a tool to initiate a paradigm shift in transforming the future of the growing number of cities in World Bank client countries.
