The Research for Community Access Partnership (ReCAP) has release a new video that explores the critical role of rural transport in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The video underwrites, with research evidence and expert views, five key messages that address the importance of improved rural access and how it contributes to realising key SDGs such as poverty alleviation, food security, gender equality, economic growth, good health and education, etc.

The SLoCaT Partnership is promoting the improvement of rural transport in partnership with, and support of the UK Aid-funded Research for Community Access Partnership (ReCAP).
