In this 30-minute online presentation and question and answer session, author Lucie Kirstein presents the new ITF report "Connecting Remote Communities". This report explores the accessibility challenges that people face in remote areas. It demonstrates how state support can ensure access to essential services and reduce social and economic isolation where private markets fail to provide adequate transport connections. It provides a classification of policy interventions in different countries and reviews common design and implementation challenges. Finally, it analyses different approaches to determine the appropriate level of state support for transport in remote communities. Lucie Kirstein is a Policy Analyst at the International Transport Forum.
