Jeff Turner & Rob Petts

Global Transport Knowledge

Partnership (gTKP)

New knowledge for challenging times: Closing knowledge gaps in an evolving Rural Transport environment


Challenging environments
Challenging Environments

  • Increased focus on Infrastructure failure as MDG deadlines approach

  • India and China making wholesale investments in rural road infrastructure, domestically and overseas

  • Continuing decentralisation of road governance

  • New forms of road financing around road funds, private sector involvement etc

  • SEACAP & AFCAP renewing focus on good practice around community access infrastructure & services

  • Bilaterals & some agencies move to supposedly more integrated rural approaches


Maintenance challenges
Maintenance challenges

  • Sustainable, Affordable, Low Volume Rural Road (LVRR) Management and Maintenance systems

  • Maintenance needs for various surface options

  • Realistic maintenance capability assessment techniques

  • Bio-derived road sector products (especially dust suppressants, stabilisers and seals)


Appraisal challenges
Appraisal challenges

  • Cost-benefit analysis for LVRRs (especially valuation of non technical issues and social benefits and the role of community participation)

  • Vehicle Operating Cost v surface type and condition relationships for various environments and means of transport


Getting research into practice
Getting Research into Practice

  • How do we develop effective Knowledge Mainstreaming mechanisms and support environment?

  • How do we improve Professionalism in the sector?

  • How do we mainstream Rural Transport Knowledge in Training and Education?

  • How do we promote the production of rural transport knowledge?


Interaction between mobility and other policy areas
Interaction between mobility and other policy areas

  • How do we mainstream gender in decentralised rural road decision-making and delivery?

  • How do we promote Agriculture and Rural Transport sector synergies and cooperation?

  • 'Beyond Roads' – what complimentary initiatives?

  • How do we promote Rural Transport services?

  • What are the interactions between rural mobility and the MDG's particularly maternal and child mortality, HIV/AIDS and education?

  • How do we promote Community participation in decision-making and delivery?
