    Foresight and Scenario Planning for Smart Mobility in Latin America and the Caribbean
    (Washington, DC: World Bank, 2023-01-20) World Bank
    The World Bank Transport Global Practice (GP) promotes safe, clean, affordable transport that supports economic and social development. One of the focuses of the Transport GP’s portfolio is to support client countries’ and cities’ efforts to implement smart mobility. Smart mobility, in this report, refers to transport modes and services with efficient, convenient, safe, or sustainable features backed up by technological components. Examples of smart mobility include transport modes with digital ticketing, on-demand mobility, drones, and autonomous vehicles, although there is a wide variety of smart mobility options. World Bank Group (WBG) clients require expertise and strategies to be able to implement smart mobility applications and solutions. The World Bank Information and Technology Solutions Technology and Innovation Lab (ITSTI) has expertise in use of disruptive technologies such as artificial intelligence, Internet of things, blockchain, and robotics and has developed policy recommendations using a policy development methodology called Foresight, which is a structured, systematic way of using ideas about the future to anticipate and prepare for change. Transport GP, Digital Development GP, and ITSTI used Foresight to develop this report to assist clients by providing insights into the Foresight methodology and how it can be leveraged to develop future-ready international development projects.
