A Lession resource: Using bicycles to promote economic development

Ruth Tarrant

15th October 2015

The second lesson resource this week focuses on the role that ownership, or at least shared ownership, of bicycles can play in causing rising economic growth and development in LDCs. There is usually a large focus on the need for large-scale transport infrastructure to cause growth and development - but could the humble bicycle actually be a more effective way of boosting growth and a route out of poverty?
