Many stakeholders view rural access as vital strand of sustainable transport. The six year UK Aid-funded Africa and Asia Community Access Partnership (AFCAP-ASCAP)2 is, for example, undertaking research with the aim of promoting safe and sustainable rural access for all people in Africa and Asia. 

Detailing indicators on Rural Transport includes the following tasks and outputs:

(i) coordinate with other groups linked to AFCAP/ASCAP on indicator development

(ii) document past and on-going efforts on relevant indicators by relevant stakeholders

(iii) develop revised indicators for possible rural transport-related targets based on the SLoCaT Results Framework and linking 
up with leading indicator efforts (of the UN Statistical Commission and the Sustainable Development Solutions Network).
