Which topics will be covered? Series topics will be selected to principally support the Global Practice's strategic priorities - for example, climate change, road safety, Internet for Development, and the post-2015 Sustainable Development Goals.

How do I submit an idea for a note? Submissions can be made on a rolling basis by sending a completed paper or report, with a brief justification for consideration, directly to the Transport and ICT Global Practice's Lead Economist.
