Author(s) from Durham


This Literature Review was prepared as the preliminary output towards an overview paper on transport services and their impact on poverty and growth to date in rural sub-Saharan Africa for AFCAP. On the basis of the literature review and associated communication with researchers active in transport services-related research in Africa, the aim is to identify key research gaps, assessing a) where and how current commissioned AFCAP projects will contribute to filling these gaps and b) areas where new transport services research needs commissioning.
