The World Bank Group and the Japanese Ministry of Land Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism (MLIT) co-hosted a videoconference-based knowledge sharing seminar on Transit-oriented Development (TOD) at the World Bank Tokyo Development Learning Center on June 30, 2015.
In the seminar, best practices of TOD (mainly those of Tokyo Metropolitan area) and Land Value Capture (LVC) were shared, together with projects from Ho Chi Minh City and Naya Raipur, both supported by the World Bank.
The session was a much awaited follow-up to the knowledge sharing seminar on TOD held in October 2014, in which MLIT and the World Bank Tokyo Development Learning Center agreed to collaborate and deliver a series of seminars on the same topic, and marks the first session in the new Knowledge Sharing Seminar Series on TOD.
More sessions in this seminar intended to delve deeper in to the challenges and solutions in TOD is underway with collaboration of MLIT, academics and private sector.

As previously reported, the TDLC undertook an independent assessment of its Phase 1 operations (up to June 2010), consisting of case studies and an assessment of our performance, to reflect on our efforts in the past to achieve our goals, and enable us to make better decisions going forward with Phase 2 of our operations. The final version of this assessment report is now available on our project documents page. After examining the Assessment Report that resulted from this effort, we have created a response.
An assessment of the TDLC Project has been conducted in line with completion of its first phase of operations (Phase 1) up to 30 June 2010. An Executive Summary and Terms of Reference (TOR) are now available.
This assessment has been conducted and published as means to ensure the accountability of the project to its stakeholders and examine the groundwork of the second phase of operations (Phase 2). It was carried out intensively from March 2010 by two external experts via desk research, a survey, interviews and review of selected case studies to measure key performance indicators and impact.
