A Lession resource: Using bicycles to promote economic development

Ruth Tarrant

15th October 2015

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?
