2013 - Africa - Transport Services and Poverty

This overview paper considers transport services and their impact on poverty and growth in rural subSaharan Africa.  It covers: 

1. Observed  transport services impacts on poverty and growth to date in rural subSaharan Africa

2. Constraints on poverty alleviation and growth associated with deficiencies in rural transport


3. The potential for improved transport services to impact on poverty and growth in rural areas

(including possible extended connectivity from integration with mobile phone networks)

4. Identification of key research gaps, assessing (i) where and how current commissioned

AFCAP projects will contribute to filling these gaps and (ii) areas where new transport services research needs commissioning.
