Enhancing understanding on safe motorcycle and three-wheeler use for rural transport in DRC – Inception Report
This Inception Report details progress during the first four weeks of the project ‘Enhancing understanding on safe motorcycle and three-wheeler use for rural transport and the implications for appropriate training and regulatory frameworks in DRC’. The main purpose of Phase 1 (Inception) is to build an understanding of the existing situation in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), and to use this understanding to develop the detailed research strategy and methodology. The understanding of the existing situation is being developed through stakeholder mapping, stakeholder engagement and a literature review.
The research strategy and methodology is broadly based on the strategy and methodology used in Phase 1 of the project and applied in Ghana, Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda (2018 – find reports in the Knowledge Centre). After an initial scoping trip to DRC that took place in February 2019, the strategy was reviewed and finalised together with identifying key stakeholders and partners.
Data collection tools used in Phase 1 have been reviewed for use in DRC. They have been adapted for the DRC context, however the integrity of the questionnaires have been maintained to allow for cross-country comparisons.
