TRANSPORT AND THIRD WORLD DEVELOPMENT: REVIEW, ISSUES, AND PRESCRIPTION

This article has several purposes. First, it is intended to capsule some of the salient research on transport and development in third world countries since the early 1980s. Second, and more important, it attempts to suggest some new research directions for consideration and possible inquiry. The commentary and review is confined largely to transport development and impact in the rural and regional context. Despite the critical importance of investments in Third World cities as well as the other modes of transport it is the land transport sector, and especially roads and regional development, that continues to receive the lion's share of the budget allocations and has the potential to affect the largest number of beneficiaries.
