Transport is fundamental to economic growth and the delivery of basic services, and low-volume roads are the principal form of connectivity in the rural parts of most low-income countries. People require access to reach basic services and all kinds of economic and social opportunities, yet an estimated 1 billion live farther than 2 kilometers from an all-weather road.
Isolated communities are often left behind in development. The challenge is to achieve sustainable access at justifiable cost and promote the availability of reliable and affordable means of transport in rural areas.
Managed by Cardno Emerging Markets (UK) Ltd. and funded by the U.K. Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office, the Research for Community Access Partnership, or ReCAP, aims to strengthen the evidence base on more cost-effective and reliable low-volume road and transport services, thereby inﬂuencing policy and practice. During this webinar, a panel of experts involved in the program will share lessons learned from the past six years of ReCAP’s work.
