On 1 January 2016, the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development adopted by world leaders in September 2015, officially came into force.

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).
