Toolkit for Promoting the Sustainability of Rural Transport Infrastructure
The geographical and economic isolation of rural communities is often exacerbated by a lack of political commitment to local mobility issues. Rather than wait for state and regional authorities to deliver and maintain adequate transport infrastructure, many rural communities in developing countries have taken responsibility for their own mobility needs and driven forward their own solutions.
In collaboration with the Swiss Agency for Development Co-operation (SDC), the International Forum for Rural Transport and Development (IFRTD) developed a Toolkit that isolates some of the key factors influencing the success or failure of local level transport interventions.
