Asian Development Bank
The Asian Development Bank (ADB) is the predominant regional development institution for the Asia Pacific region. It covers 44 developing countries in the region which has half the world's population. The ADB is planning to conduct a Transport Forum but requires additional financial resources to underpin the event. In this respect gTKP has agreed to support the Forum as the event will be an important venue to disseminate information and discuss important policy issues that concern a wide rnage of developing countries in the region. The involvement of gTKP provides the opportunity to partner with an important multilateral development partner in an event that will attract senior policy makers and transport practitioners from across the region. By partnering with ADB the credibility of gTKP will be significantly enhanced both by other potential partners as well as practitioners, members and future potential members.

50 by 50 - Global Fuel Economy Initiative
The Global Fuel Economy Initiative exists to promote debate and discussion around the issue of fuel economy. On the basis of current evidence on existing technologies, we believe that huge gains could be made in the fuel economy, gains which could help every country, but particularly those in the developing world, to address the pressing issues of climate change, energy security and sustainable mobility which they face. In the longer term we want to see real improvements in the fuel economy capacity of the global car fleet. To that end, we will continue to raise awareness, present evidence, and offer support, in a way which enables more and more countries to adopt effective fuel economy standards and policies which work in their circumstances and with their fleet.

Department for International Development
The UK government believes it is in all our interests to help poor people build a better life for themselves. So in 1997 it created a separate government department - the Department for International Development (DFID) - to meet the many challenges of tackling world poverty. It is DFID’s job to make sure every pound of British aid works its hardest to help the world’s poor.
DFID is the part of the UK government that manages Britain's aid to poor countries and works to get rid of extreme poverty.
