An introductory webinar on the topic of Motorcycle Taxis in the Rural Context in Sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia

This free, introductory webinar on the topic of Motorcycle Taxis in the rural context of Sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia was held on Thursday 6th of April 2017. This was a Research for Community Access Partnership (ReCAP) event, made possible with funding from the Department for International Development and facilitated by Transaid.


ReCAP is a six-year programme of applied research and knowledge dissemination funded by a grant from the UK Government through the DfID. The overall aim is to promote safe and sustainable rural access in Africa and Asia through research and knowledge sharing between participating countries and the wider community. Transaid would like to thank ReCAP; as without their support, this webinar would not have been possible.


The webinar brought together African and Asian transport research practitioners, from within research institutes and universities, regulators and practitioners. Our panel of experts included Mr. Leo Ngowi from the Surface and Marine Transport Regulatory Authority in Tanzania (SUMATRA), Dr. Elizabeth Ekirapa Kiracho from Makerere University in Uganda and Mr. Felix Wilhelm Siebert from the Technical University of Berlin. The discussion was moderated by Caroline Barber, Head of Programmes at Transaid who invited participants to ask questions as well as to contribute ideas for further research into this topic.
