Abstract

Agglomeration effects and productivity gains are among the most desired of urbanisation outcomes. The less desirable outcomes, lagging infrastructure, elevated crime rates, and greater congestion require more evidence to understand what does and does not work to be effectively addressed. This blog examines the challenges of congestion and traffic in Dhaka, and it explores the potential for data to uncover evidenced-based policy designs that can effectively mitigate the downsides of congestion.
