Access and challenges in rural areas
Urban and rural areas are mutually dependent. Rural areas depend on cities, for example, for a more advanced selection of services and for higher education. Correspondingly, cities need rural areas, for example, for food production and recreation sites. The transport system is the glue that holds this network together.
This report, Access and transport policy challenges in different rural areas, describes and analyses the challenges facing transport systems in rural areas. The report concludes by touching on several tools and measures that might be used to meet these challenges.
