Connecting Remote Communities Roundtable
How to ensure adequate transport links for sparsely populated regions
The Roundtable will explore policies to ensure adequate access to indispensable services for residents in sparsely populated regions. It aims to provide insights into how different countries address the connectivity challenge for remote and rural communities. It will outline methods to assess the level of connectivity across transport modes and also through other means, such as internet-based services. Finally, approaches to measuring the value for money of different policy options will be considered.
ITF Secretary-General Young Tae Kim will attend the second day of the Roundtable, while on mission to the ICAO General Assembly.
