The paper reviews the history and current usage of Intermediate Means of Transport
(IMTs) with particular reference to Ghana. An earlier version of this paper was prepared as preliminary background for a small action research project in 5 off-road villages in southern Ghana (which commenced in February 2001). The current version incorporates findings from the ensuing project. The paper, although especially relevant to the coastal Ghanaian context, has wider application in Ghana and sub-Saharan Africa.
