Action research to evaluate the impact on livelihoods of a set of post-harvest interventions in Ghana's off-road settlements: focus on IMTs

A research project of the Department of Anthropology, part of the Anthropology in Development and Anthropology in Development research groups.


The specific research objectives of the project are to develop transport strategies for improving farm to market access in off-road areas, focussing on IMTs. It will select and test a range of IMTs, mostly with women, assessing the technical, socio-economic and environmental implications of IMT adoption. Strategies will be developed to assist IMT assessment and adoption elsewhere.
