Inclusive and Green Rural Roads – Beyond Connectivity, Accelerating Green Growth

This presentation aims to contribute to the evolving thinking on how in particular rural roads and transport can better contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals and what practical measures could be taken to make rural roads and transport ‘greener’ and more ‘inclusive’ – with a special attention on vulnerable groups: women and unemployed youth. 
 
The presentation uses research findings undertaken under the ReCAP Gender Mainstreaming Program in Ethiopia. It looks at how rural roads and transport can unblock access to rural goods and services; how it triggers direct labour opportunities and skills development, how it triggers the development of local business and how in particular roads can change the physical environment in a beneficial way.
