Abstract

The ESCAP secretariat undertook a review of five case studies in Bangladesh, Indonesia, Nepal, Pakistan and the Philippines where interventions in the transport sector contributed substantially or played a catalytic role in the alleviation of poverty, and helped to improve the quality of life in disadvantaged and/or remote communities. This publication identifies, catalogues and describes processes which have been tried and tested, and could be replicated and/or adapted in other countries of the ESCAP region. It documents the original objectives of the projects, describes the process of implementation, including modalities, and highlights the achievements and impacts of the projects/programmes, with a view to providing a basis for more efficient and cost-effective planning of transport interventions aimed at alleviating poverty in developing countries.
