Case Studies

Transaid Technical Case Studies are two-page outlines of programmes and activities that Transaid has worked on. They aim to provide the reader with a clear and technical overview of the methodology, outcomes, conclusions and recommendations. Technical Case Studies should be a useful resource for implementers working in the transport and development sector as they are based upon our own implementing experiences while presenting any challenges we might have faced and providing technical guidance.
