Transport, the missing link?: id21 insights, issue 63
What do poor rural farmers do when the rainy season cuts off their access to markets? What do women in labour do when the nearest health clinic is 30 kilometres away and transport is virtually non-existent? How can girls attend school if the journey isn’t safe? How do women provide for their families when the transport burden of domestic chores takes up potential income generating time?
In this issue of id21 insights, each article builds a picture of transport’s catalytic role in creating greater access to employment opportunities, educational and health facilities, agricultural development, social
inclusion and networking.
