Rural Transport Indicators
Rural Transport Services

In 2012, the International Forum for Rural Transport and Development (IFRTD) in conjunction with Paul Starkey was awarded a research contract by the African Community Access Programme (AFCAP). The project aims to develop and test indicators that can be used to assess how good rural transport services are at providing access for rural people. The envisaged outcome of the research will be appropriate rural transport services indicators that are tested and disseminated to the transport sector in various African countries. The research aims to identify, develop, test and share rural transport services indicators relevant to the key stakeholders, including rural people, transport operators, regulators, planners, roads authorities and development agencies. This will be achieved using participative methodologies involving local stakeholders and sector experts. Initial studies have been carried out in Kenya and Tanzania between April and September 2012. Initial findings have been encouraging and work will be extended to further African countries.

This website is being developed to provide background to the project. It will, as the project develops, act as a forum for the exchange of information about rural transport services and how they can be assessed. The project team will be contributing information resources and ideas. We encourage people to sign in to register their interest. This will allow them to receive our progress reports as the project develops, and also to contribute their own ideas and feedback.
