Summary:
The objective of the handbook is to assess the impact of large transport projects on the urban poor and to propose a socio-economic impact assessment methodology (SEIA) which can be integrated in the impact assessment studies of such projects. The handbook presents a methodology to understand the impact of accessibility and mobility on socio-economic well-being (SEWB) of the urban poor. It uses household survey based primary data to derive indicators of acessibility, mobility and SEWB. The change in indicators and indices in the before and after project scenarios is used to assess the signficance of the impact of the project on the urban poor.
