SUSTAINABLE TRANSPORTATION: OPTIONS FOR THE POOR

On the basis of two examples, from El Salvador and Nicaragua, the authors show that even in countries where adverse conditions prevail, it is possible to help the bicycle achieve a break-through as a means of transportation for people and goods. However, if there is to be a lasting improvement in conditions for the poor sector of the population more needs to be done. Capital must be made available to enable them to buy suitable low-cost means of transportation. And this must be complemented by appropriate infrastructural measures, subsidies, and training programs, to mention just a few areas.
