Improved paths and tracks: Part 1
Practical Action
The International Forum for Rural Transport and Development is a global network of
individuals and representatives from government, academia, multilateral and bilateral donor
agencies, consultancies and technical institutions, national and international NGOs and
groups of community organisations in 83 countries in Africa, Asia, Europe and North and
South America. There are over 1800 members in the network. The Forum’s long-term vision is
of a world in which rural communities, particularly those who are poor and disadvantaged,
have improved accessibility and mobility.
Forum News is produced by the Secretariat, four times a year in English, French and Spanish.
Members receive the newsletter free of charge. Each issue of the newsletter is based on a
specific theme. Themes addressed in past newsletters have included sustainable rural
livelihoods, gender and transport, engineering for transport, networking, maintenance, and
community participation.
